A comparison of commercially available comprehensive pharmacogenomic tests

Created by Jeanette McCarthy, PhD


Several factors go into selecting a PGx gene panel test including which genes are on the panel, the scope of variants detected, as well as cost, insurance reimbursement, turn-around-time, ease of use of the report, integration of results into the EHR and other factors. In this white paper, we dig into commercially available comprehensive PGx tests and compare and evaluate the clinical validity of the genes analyzed. 

Want more on Pharmacogenomics?

Do you find yourself still asking the following questions about pharmacogenomics:

  • How can genetic testing can be used to reduce side effects and improve efficacy of prescription medications? 
  • Which pharmacogenomic test should I order? 
  • Does insurance cover pharmacogenomic testing? 

If you are interested in learning more about pharmacogenomics, check out our online course, Pharmacogenomics in Practice. Join Dr. Jeanette McCarthy, a genome scientist and leading educator in the field of precision medicine, to learn how to implement pharmacogenomic testing in your practice.
