Genecept Assay analyzes fundamental genes in your body that affect the way in which it responds to a medication.
This can help your doctor determine if a medication can work for you even before you try it.
With this information and your medical history, your doctor can find the right treatments so you can feel better faster.
Why is it advisable to take the Genecept Assay test?
Up to half of the patients have a negative response to the first psychiatric medication they receive. This is because each person’s body is different, and the way your body responds to a particular medication depends on its genetic or its specific DNA.
How does this test work?
The Genecept Assay is a simple test: it only requires a small sample of your saliva, which is collected by rubbing the inside of your cheek with a cotton swab. The sample is sent to Genomind, Pennsylvania, United States, for analysis. The results of the test will be communicated to your doctor in 10 business days.
