Genecept Assay

Pharmacogenetic Testing to Support your Employees' Mental Health

Genecept Assay®, our pharmacogenetic test, helps employees with a mental health condition get the right treatment faster so that they can get back to work and life.

Because everyone is different – particularly in their genetic makeup – as many as half of all individuals respond poorly to the first psychiatric medicine prescribed for them. The Genecept® test looks at key genes in an individual’s DNA that affect their response to medication.

Coupled with the medical history, this test helps the clinician to identify which medication is most likely to be effective – so your employee can feel better, faster.
