Until recently, most medicines have been developed and prescribed to patients in a one size fits all approach. PGx testing informs your physician about your, or your childs, genetic makeup to help determine which medications to use or the amount prescribed. PGx testing may also reduce side-effects.

MediMap is a one-time genetic test that may indicate how a person will respond to some prescription medications. The test helps guide healthcare providers to better medication choices and doses for their patients. MediMap testing provides information to more effectively manage illnesses and improve their health.
