About Targeted Genomics

We are committed to dialogue between clients and providers, doctors and patients, family and friends. Targeted Genomics believes knowledge of the human genome should be shared. Our tests are designed to provide actionable insights for evidence-based decision making and informed lifestyle choices. We encourage our customers to share results with their physicians and be an active participant in their own treatment plan. Integrative medicine can reduce the impact of chronic disease and our mission is to be a resource for people looking to take control of their health and wellness through a deeper understanding of their genetic health risk.

The GlutenID® test does not require a blood draw. Instead, a swab is used to collect cheek cells inside the mouth from which DNA will be extracted by the laboratory.
The laboratory uses a technology called next generation sequencing (NGS) for the GlutenID® test.  Samples are batched and run weekly or bi-weekly resulting in a 7-14 day turn-around-time.

Once results have been emailed to the client, samples are de-identified and discarded by the laboratory.
