Home DNA Sample Collection Kit

Myriad Genetics has launched a patient home collection kit for its GeneSight Psychotropic test. The kit allows the DNA sample collection typically administered in a clinician’s office to be completed at home. The direct-to-patient collection kit must still be ordered by a licensed healthcare provider and clinicians can visit the online GeneSight portal to request that a kit be sent directly to the patient. The kit contains a swab the patient can use to collect DNA from the inside of their cheeks. After collecting the sample, the patient puts the swab into a confidential, pre-paid and pre-addressed shipping envelope to return it to the Myriad Neuroscience CLIA and CAP Accredited lab for processing. Results are returned to the order- ing physician with two days via the GeneSight secure clinician portal.
