LetsGetChecked MyPGx

LetsGetChecked has launched its MyPGx pharmacogenomic testing panel, which identifies potential drug-gene interactions for more than 100 drugs across a variety of diseases, including behavioral health, cardiovascular health, and pain management. The test panel will initially be available to health plans, enterprises, providers, and the public sector and processed in LetsGetChecked's CLIA approved and College of American Pathologists-accredited laboratories. Data and reporting information for the test will be fully integrated into the company's ecosystem, which includes lab analysis, clinician support, and prescription fulfillment.
