CLINICAL EXPERIENCE AND
KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT

Clinical experience

Integrated by clinicians and pharmacists specialized in the field of clinical pharmacology and physicians specialized in internal medicine, cardiology, neurology, clinical geneticists, biologists and bioinformaticians

Knowledge Management

Expert detailed curation of Scientific Literature and recommendations of the main clinical pharmacogenetics guidelines

Lastest technologies

Deep sequencing NGS approach with an in-house designed panel. Allows for the study of highly polymorphic genes and structural variants (CNVs)

Pharmacogenetic study

Pharmacogenetics Global Panel

[85 DRUGS, 17 GENES AND 935 GENETICS REGIONS]

The pharmacogenetics global panel analyzes genetic-based variation in response to different drugs within a single panel. The study includes all drugs and genetic variants included in the recommendations of the main clinical pharmacogenetics guidelines.

Results are communicated via a report aimed at healthcare professionals. The report contains dosing strategies recommended in the main published clinical practice guidelines in the field of pharmacogenetics and in summaries of product characteristics of the different drugs, as well as a color-coded priority ranking for easy interpretation and application.

The global pharmaHIC panel provides information on treatment individualization for 85 drugs, 17 genes, and 935 genetic regions.

Edificio O Fortín, As Xubias s/n.
C.P.15006. A Coruña.
Spain

We can process 3 different sample types:

Peripheral blood

(3 to 5 ml in EDTA tubes)

Genomic DNA
