BPH is an industry leading, full-service clinical laboratory. We deliver quality service and efficient results for molecular genetics, blood testing, toxicology, and pathology.

Pharmacogenomics is the first step towards “personalized medicine”.

Pharmacogenomics or PGx is a genetic testing profile which analyzes genetic variations to determine how the body metabolizes many of the most common medications on the market today. PGx testing is one of the leading tools to help your healthcare provider determine the best medication for you which is why it is also commonly referred to as personalized medicine. Your healthcare provider will consider additional factors such as your age, lifestyle, other medications you are taking and your overall health when choosing the right treatment for you. A PGx test is a once in a lifetime application that is non-invasive with results available in as little as 7 days.

BPH is a strong supporter of the American Society of Clinical Oncologists (ASCO)*, particularly with regard to their recommendations on genetic and genomic testing elaborated in the 2009 policy statement: follow-up care; increased education and awareness; multidisciplinary research; pre- and post-test counseling; informed consent; accessibility through insurance; privacy and data security; and, continued oversight for accuracy, validity and quality of genetic test and testing laboratories.
