MatchMyMeds™ is a simple drug-compatibility test. It is NOT a disease-predictive test.

Unlike some of the popular DNA testing services available on the market to either learn about your ancestry, or to find out if you have a chance of getting some sort of disease, PGx testing is your tool for personalized, precision medicine. PGx is the study of how individual patients might respond to specific medications based on the individual’s genetic make-up.

It signals the end of “one size fits all” medicine.
