Frequently Asked Questions
Pharmacogenetics is the study of how genetic differences can cause variations in individual response to medications.
A pharmacogenetic test will tell you how your body metabolizes, or processes, a specific medication. Some people metabolize medications rapidly, while
others metabolize certain medications slowly. Understanding how your body metabolizes medications you are prescribed, or potentially would be prescribed, allows your care professionals to customize your medications and calculate optimal dosing.
A sterile swab is used to gather a sample of DNA from inside your cheek. It is a simple and painless process.
An authorization will be required, but there’s nothing for you to do. MedTek21 Direct will work with your physician to authorize the test.
The results of your test will be sent directly to you and your physician team, typically within 3-5 days after we receive your sample. Results will also be made available through the MedTek21 portal.
MedTek21 Direct facilitates the completion of a pharmacogenomic test panel, which is a clinical diagnostic tool that requires a physican approval. Use of the MedTek21 platform is contingent on this approval. The use of these panels is subject to restrictions on patient location set forth by certain states. Your MedTek21 care coordinator will ensure you meet all requirements prior to sending you a test kit.
