  • Best machine for pharmacogenomics testing

    Hi
    I just joined your forum and I am a pain management physician in Florida and I was checking if anyone can help me with information on the best machine and most cost effective I can buy for my office to do genetic testing for the different types of cytochrome p450 that can affect pain meds and antidepressant metabolism
    Thank you very much for any input

    How much experience do you have in the sequencing field? I'm not convinced any of these systems are ready for a typical physician's office, either on the laboratory side or the informatics side.

      These systems can be rather complicated and costly. Do you really need them for your physician's office?

        I think for basic CYP genes testing for psych meds, you only need to test CYP2C19 and CYP2D6. It is easier you just ask a lab to do that for you.

        If you need to do way more than that two genes, then you might also need to hire a bioinformatician or learn bioinformatics yourself.

          The majority of pharmacogenetic testing is with PCR or Array based testing today because the number of features that have solid evidence are relatively small and customers are price sensitive. We have a list of relevant SNPs that I can provide if you are interested.

            Best Practices for Single-Cell Sequencing Analysis
            by seqadmin



            While isolating and preparing single cells for sequencing was historically the bottleneck, recent technological advancements have shifted the challenge to data analysis. This highlights the rapidly evolving nature of single-cell sequencing. The inherent complexity of single-cell analysis has intensified with the surge in data volume and the incorporation of diverse and more complex datasets. This article explores the challenges in analysis, examines common pitfalls, offers...
