ORDERING A PHARMACOGENTIC TEST
If you are a patient please contact us to find a physician near you.
PHYSICIANS AND MEDICAL STAFF
You will receive the following items in your RIGHTMED Kit: 1. 2 Buccal Swabs, 2. Requisition Form, 3. FedEx Envelope and Label.
Take each Buccal Swab and rub the inside of the cheek for a good 30 - 40 seconds. This makes sure that sufficient DNA will be on the Buccal Swab for testing. If there is insufficient DNA a re-swab will be requested. Once the Buccal Swab has been taken, place it back in the container and attach a barcode found at the bottom of the Requisition Form on each container. You can also “activate” the bar code via your online portal.
