Advances in the science of personalized medicine continue to reveal specific genetic variations that modify the body's response to various drugs and therapies. By identifying these variations, clinicians can design more targeted and personalized treatment plans for each patient.
The Genecept Assay is a simple to use, saliva-based tool for understanding genetic markers that can inform response to different psychiatric treatments. The Assay is Genomind’s core product, and contains a proprietary panel of biomarker tests, an analytic report, and a psychopharmacologist consultation. The Assay can be used for a range of psychiatric conditions including depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety disorders, OCD and ADHD. The Assay is reimbursed by many insurance providers and can also be covered through Genomind’s Patient Assistance Plan or a self-pay option.
Patient provides 1ml of saliva - about a small spoonful - into a tube and the clinician mails the sample in a postage-paid shipping package to Genomind’s lab. The lab will analyze the DNA in 3-5 business upon receipt of the saliva sample. Genomind will send the patient’s genetic test results in a report, with clinical interpretations, directly to the clinician.
The Genecept Assay assists clinicians who have difficult-to-treat patients, make more informed treatment decisions. The clinician will gain valuable insights about a potential neurochemical imbalance, and will be able to choose a course of action for the individual, based on their genetic and biological predispositions. By honing in on the underlying causes of the neuropsychiatric condition, clinicians are able to more efficiently design effective treatment plans.
