Personalized Medicine is the customization of healthcare and pharmacogenetics takes it to the genetic level, by marrying the prescription of medicine - both in ingredients and in dosage - with the science of a person's DNA. It makes the application and delivery of personalized medication more efficient, more safe, more cost-effective, and more accurate, by predicting a patient's drug response based on genetics rather than trial and error.
GeneTrait - a part of PTC Laboratories - is a world pioneer in pharmacogenetics, specializing in genetic testing for drug/medication metabolism that identifies prescription risk factors and drug-to-drug interactions. We use the latest in genotyping technology and advanced molecular diagnostics to provide results with forensic grade accuracy. Our assays provide doctors and physicians with a risk-management profile for patient medications that include the common cardiac (heart), psychotropic and pain medications. Our accurate genetic testing allows hospitals and clinics to truly personalize patient care and optimize treatment plans, to the utmost benefit of their patients and their own institutions.
