Comprehensive Pharmacogenomics Test
Optimizing Drug Response with Precision
The GenMedRx Comprehensive Test is a pharmacogenomic (PGx) assessment that examines a person’s genetic makeup to aid physicians and pharmacists in predicting their response to various medications. This test encompasses numerous drugs employed to address a broad spectrum of health issues, such as cancer, mental disorders, chronic pain, cardiovascular diseases, and beyond. The report consolidates the findings, presenting genotype and phenotype data for drug metabolizing genes and details on the 300+ medications included in the test.
Advantages of Pharmacogenomics
Pharmacogenomics (PGx) focuses on understanding how genetic variations influence an individual’s response to medications. In a study, over 99% of participants had a genotype linked to an increased risk for at least one drug. 1 The insights gained from pharmacogenomic research can lead to enhanced outcomes for patients and healthcare providers by improving medication safety and effectiveness while reducing medical expenses.
- Employing pharmacogenomic techniques can ultimately empower healthcare providers to:
- Optimize the intended purpose of a medication or therapy
- Minimize adverse drug reactions
- Accelerate the attainment of a drug’s therapeutic benefits
- Lower the likelihood of side effects or dependence
- Reduce healthcare costs through:
- Utilizing genomic data to select the most suitable and cost-effective drug initially
- Identifying and mitigating adverse drug reactions early in treatment, thereby:
- Shortening hospital stays
- Decreasing hospital readmissions
- Lowering emergency room visits

Sample Preparation Instructions
All clinical materials should be collected with approved methods to avoid contamination and cross contamination. A sterile environment must be maintained when collecting samples. Our sample preparation requirements are detailed in the table below:
|EDTA Blood||≥ 1 mL|
|Buccal swab||1 Oragene™ OCR-100 buccal swab collection set|
|Saliva||1 Oragene™ OG-610 saliva collection set|
|Ready to use DNA||≥ 1 µg |
For DNA samples, we recommend extraction using Qiagen kits, elution in water in 20 µL volume (min), plus evaluation of 260/280 Ratio (1.6 - 2.1) and fluorescent dye quantification of concentration (> 10 ng/µL) before sending.
EDTA Blood, buccal swab, saliva and DNA samples can be sent via regular mail at room temperature. Liquid blood is stable for up to 4 days during transport.
Sample should be sent to:
