ACCURATE, RELIABLE RESULTS You can be confident in the integrity of the results you receive because all our analyses are performed by precisely calibrated, contemporary equipment. Our lab features an Olympus A480 Chemistry System, an Access2 Immunoassay System and a CellDyn 1800 Hematology System.
The Reporting Todays’ Patients and Practitioners Deserve
Our’ reports feature clear, detailed graphing that makes it easy to identify at a glance which results are out of range and by how much. We plot each patient’s full panel of results against accepted ranges and highlight those measurements that call for special attention. Then we break down each element of the panel separately with bold colored markings that are designed to accelerate your analysis process and ensure that no significant result is overlooked.
PGX Testing offers comprehensive urine screening services for substance abuse programs, medical offices
and long-term care facilities.
WHY TEST FOR TOXICOLOGY?
Improves the safety and quality of patient lives
Our toxicology program improves the safety and quality of patient lives, while limiting the liability of providers.
Our lab is constantly expanding test panel(s) to stay current with new
medications, illicit drugs, and controlled substances. Our advanced technology is equipped with the
industry’s most precise detection levels, to ensure the highest sensitivity and most accurate reporting.
Increased sensitivity allows for enhanced detection of individual drugs and metabolites using a
minimal volume of specimen.
Clear and reliable
We provide clear and reliable information about patient’s medications to make informed clinical decisions regarding treatment.
Our Reporting identifies both the drug class and metabolites within that class. Additional liability coverage
when the provider validates an in-ofce test through our lab.
Urine toxicology screening is an effective clinical tool for healthcare professionals who need clear and
reliable information about their patient’s use of prescribed medications, non-prescribed medications or the
presence of any illicit substances in order to make informed clinical decisions regarding treatment.
Results enable healthcare professionals to:
• Identify possible drug on drug interactions
• Identify certain forms of drug-related behavior
• Identify any patient diversion efforts
PGX Testing utilizes an in-office reporting system in order to provide the most accurate and
easy-to-read reports through our HIPAA compliant physician portal.

How it Works
Every patient is different
Each person responds differently to prescription medications. Our test allows your doctor to deliver a comprehensive report to help manage your medications based on your personal genetic makeup. Choosing medications that are best suited for you, rather than experimenting with medications which could result in negative side effects or drug on drug interactions.
What is Pharmacogenomics?
Pharmacogenomics is the branch of pharmacology, which deals with the influence of genetic variation on drug response in patients by correlating gene expression or single-nucleotide polymorphisms with a drug’s efficacy or toxicity.
At PGX Testing, we utilize the latest in genotype technology coupled with a cutting edge clinical team to deliver on our belief. “Right Medication, Right Dose, Decreased Side Effects.”.
Genetic testing process
To begin the journey into personalized medicine, your physician will determine if PGX Testing is the right fit for you. The physician will either order saliva based test kits (buccal swabs) directly from us, or our on-site mobile genetic collection specialists will travel to the physicians office or healthcare facility for specimen collection.
Our clinical team is always available to answer any questions you or your physician may have regarding your personalized test results.

Why should I be tested?
Medication sensitivity testing is the cornerstone of personalized medicine. Determining how well you metabolize medication raises chances of a positive outcome and reduces possible adverse drug on drug interactions.
Personalized medicine conveys a blueprint to how your body’s unique molecular characteristics and distinctions allow it to processes medication.Your physician will have the data necessary to custom tailor a medication management protocol whereby the current/future adjustments and medication alternatives best for you may be selected.
I’ve been tested; now what?
Your physician will review your personalized Stop, Caution and Safe recommendations for any possible medication therapy changes or dose alterations. We are happy to provide answers to any of your questions and are always available for consultation with your physician.
