FAQ

What are the benefits of saving my data to GeneAccount?

The results of genetic testing do not expire. After the test has been taken and the results are saved, there is no need to do the test ever again. The same results can be utilized throughout Your life. The test is often taken for a specific drug, but the results of the test panel can be utilized also in prescribing and dosing of new drugs. All the results are in GeneAccount and can be used before a new drug is prescribed.

How much does the service cost?

You can use the GeneAccount Service free of charge. The cost for a pharmacogenetic test varies based on the service provider. Ask more about the test from your healthcare experts.

Does the test reveal all my genetic information?

A Pharmacogenetic test is not a sequencing of the whole genome. It is a targeted genetic test in which a specific panel of genes are studied. Any other genomic information is not revealed in the test. For example, a pharmacogenetic test does not study the patient’s risk to get a hereditary illness.

How can I view the results in GeneAccount?

You can study Your information by logging into My GeneAccount in https://my.geneaccount.com/.

Why the test was not taken when my medication was prescribed?

The cost of genetic technology in the laboratories has plummeted in recent years. A couple years ago the test would have been too expensive to be efficient. Now the tests are fairly affordable and recommended when starting to take certain drugs. Even if the medication was started earlier, the test can still reveal the suitability and the proper dose of the drug.

Is my information safe in GeneAccount?
