Personalized medicine for psychiatry

Genetic testing can help unlock what your body needs to feel better.

The Genecept Assay® is a genetic test created to assist clinicians in optimizing treatment decisions for patients with a mental illness. The test examines patient-specific genetic markers that can identify treatments that are more likely to work as intended, not have an effect, or cause a negative effect. It is a quickly administered cheek swab test that evaluates key genes, chosen based on hundreds of studies that show variations in these genes can help inform treatment choices for mental disorders.

Genecept is used to guide treatment for a range of psychiatric conditions, including:

  • post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • autism
  • schizophrenia
