Carrier Screening

Carrier testing is a type of genetic testing used to determine if a person is a carrier for a specific autosomal recessive disorder. An autosomal recessive disorder means two copies of an abnormal gene must be present in order for the disease or trait to develop. This type of testing is used most often by those considering becoming pregnant. Carrier testing assists in the evaluation of risk of a child inheriting certain genetic disorders. Our cutting edge technological platform for carrier test provides critical genomic information for parents and physicians to make crucial decisions regarding their personalized healthcare and family plan.

Pharmacogenetics

Elite Medical offers pharmacogenetics testing to provide insight as to a patient’s likeliness to experience an adverse reaction or a non-response to a drug. Elite’s pharmacogenetics testing includes 25 genes targeting more than 70 genetic variants that are especially dedicated to drug therapy in pain management, psychological disorders and cardiovascular diseases. This testing utilizes one of the most advanced instruments designed for gene detection.
With its optimized automation and high-throughput capability, Elite Medical is able to offer an advanced pharmacogenetics testing highlighting every individual’s specific genetic makeup that predetermines drug metabolism or lack thereof. This insight not only helps healthcare providers determine which class of medication to prescribe but also identifies any adverse reactions to medication classes that could possibly occur.
