THE FUTURE OF MEDICINE

 

Genetic Screening

At Apollo Genetics, we believe genetics is the future of medicine. Many conditions such as certain Cancers, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Cystic Fibrosis, Sickle Cell Anemia, and other conditions caused by genetic mutations can be identified with precision, allowing health care professionals to aid in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases more accurately.
 

Technology is leading the way in fighting disease and we're excited that our lab is helping to make this possible. Often these screenings are covered by Medicare and some commercial insurance plans with little to no out-of-pockets costs. We also offer premium pricing for those who lack sufficient insurance coverage and/or would prefer purchasing a test out of pocket.


 

Our focus in next generation genomics, such as Cancer Genetics, Pharmacogenetics, Carrier Genetics, and Respiratory Pathogen Panel testing is our passion. These tests can help determine whether you or your loved ones are at risk for life-threatening side effects or diseases. Early detection can be key for preventing the development of serious illnesses and can help to assist in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  Follow-up care plans through genetic counseling after completion of a genetics test can also contribute to creating a healthier way of life.

Diagnoses of various forms of cancer is on the rise in adults and children of all ages. Gene mutations found can present an increased risk of developing cancer and passing down these mutated genes from generation to generation.
Many people are prescribed a long list of medications, at times dealing with harsh side effects and ineffectiveness. Knowing which medications will work best on an individual level can be found by looking at one's genetic structure.
Preparing for children can require a range of safety measures to ensure a safe birth and healthy life of a child. Awareness of a parent's genetic makeup can help uncover gene mutations linked to diseases that could be passed down to children.
Respiratory infections occur around two times per year for most people and can be the result of acquiring Covid-19. Getting tested after developing a viral/bacterial infection allows individuals to accurately diagnose their respiratory condition.
 
“I was surprised to find that there was something you found, but that is why you do the testing; it found an abnormality that I didn’t even know was in my genes. To be warned ahead of time about what I need to do to prevent cancer was a big help to me and my family, because now we all know to get tested. Thankfully my doctor is the one that pursued this and diagnosed my throat cancer and then treated it! Now I know that it can come back, I wasn’t prepared for it but this test is making me prepared.” -Lorna T.
