Learn More about the GeneSight test

What is the GeneSight test?

GeneSight Psychotropic is a pharmacogenomic test which means that it analyzes how your genes may affect medication outcomes. The GeneSight test analyzes clinically important genetic variations in your DNA. Results can inform your doctor about how you may break down or respond to certain medications commonly prescribed to treat depression, anxiety, ADHD, and other psychiatric conditions.

The GeneSight test must be ordered by your doctor or nurse practitioner. The test is a simple cheek swab taken in your healthcare provider’s office or can be sent by your doctor to be taken in the convenience of your home. Learn More

Backed by extensive research

7 clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals support the GeneSight test’s effectiveness.

GUIDED Clinical Study

The largest patient and rater blinded pharmacogenomic study in mental health.1

Key Findings

The GeneSight test outperformed treatment as usual

11% relative improvement in depressive symptoms2
30% relative improvement in response rates3
50% relative improvement in remission rates4

1 The GUIDED Clinical Study was an 8-week, blinded, randomized controlled trial of 1,167 subjects with major depressive disorder from 20 academic sites and 40 community sites.
2 The primary endpoint of symptom improvement did not achieve statistical significance (p=0.107). Absolute improvement of 3%.
3 Secondary endpoint of response achieved statistical significance (p=0.013). Absolute improvement of 6%
4 Secondary endpoint of remission achieved statistical significance (p=0.007). Absolute improvement of 5%

How does it work?

The GeneSight test is administered by your healthcare provider in their office.

Step 1

Your clinician collects a DNA sample by painlessly swabbing the inside of your cheek OR you can collect the sample at home using our patient collection kit.

Step 2

The sample is sent to our lab for analysis.

Step 3

After we receive your sample, your doctor will typically get test results in about 2 days.

Step 4

Your clinician can contact our Medical Affairs team for a consultation. Your clinician can then review the results with you on your next visit.
