Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Dementia
The Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and Dementia genetic test is beneficial for individuals with a family history or a personal history of the disease. In this test, we look at 16 specific genes that play an important role in an individual's genetic pre-disposition to developing the disease. For individuals with a personal or family history, it can be highly beneficial to learn about a pre-disposition. By learning of this early on, preliminary screening can be performed in order to prevent the progression or severity of developing the disease.
The Carrier Screening identifies the carrier status of a couple. In this test, we look at the specific carrier mutations for over 400 conditions. By performing this test, it empowers each couple to know which conditions their children are likely to inherit from them. This allows each couple to optimize their family planning and make the most educated decisions.
Qitek Labs' cancer genomics testing allows for individuals to learn about their inherited risks for developing specific types of cancer. We analyze the variants of 127 genes that impact the potential risk for developing certain cancers. By knowing which cancers a patient is pre-disposed to, it allows preventative measures to be taken.
Cardiac testing allows the option to check for hereditary likelihoods of developing familial hypercholesterolemia or cardiomyopathy. Familial Hypercholesterolemia is a genetic test that analyzes the variants of 4 genes that have a direct correlation with a hereditary risk for developing high cholesterol. Comprehensive cardiomyopathy is a genetic test that analyzes the variants of 129 genes that have a direct correlation with cardiomypoathy.
Blood chemistry and CBC panels are vital tools used by physicians to know the health of their patients. Most of the time, an abnormal result in a common chemistry panel test, will notify the physician of an underlying problem that needs to be investigated. This allows each physician to order further diagnostic tests and prescribe helpful medications.
We offer a CBC with manual differentiation, a CBC without manual differentiation, and the following chemistry panels: comprehensive metabolic panel, basic metabolic panel, lipid panel, thyroid panel, and liver panel. Through obtaining these results, a physician is able to detect areas of the body that are either working or not working properly. This information empowers each physician to make the best decisions for their patients.
Pharmacogenomics is the study of how various drugs will affect each individual, based on his or her genetic makeup. At Qitek Labs, we analyze the variants of 17 genes that directly affect the body's metabolism of pain management medications, psychiatric medications, cardiac medications, and other prescription medications. By performing a pharmacogenetic test, a physician can better prescribe medications that will be more effective for their patients.
Toxicology testing is such a useful tool for various reasons. Physicians can manage and ensure which medications or substances that their patients are taking. A physician can know, with confidence, if a patient is taking his prescribed medications in the correct dosage. Secondly, a physician can ensure that the dosage of a specific medication is accurate for how each individual metabolizes each medication.
The molecular microbiology lab utilizes advanced genetic techniques to isolate and analyze DNA from a nasopharyngeal swab for RPP, swab for wound, or clean catch urine for UTI. Qitek Labs can rapidly process respiratory (RPP), urinary tract infection (UTI), and wound samples to help physicians treat viruses, bacterial infections, and identify genetic resistance markers for treatment guidance. COVID-10 can also be tested in addition to RPP.
