You can track the status of your cheek swab sample – from when it arrives at our lab to when your results are ready – all from your secure online Inagene account.
7. When will my results be ready?

9. How is my genetic data protected?
Inagene is committed to protecting your genetic data and will never share or sell your data to third parties. Also, it’s important to note that no Inagene personnel can link your sample to your personal information – you have the only link to your results. We have comprehensive security controls to protect against unauthorized use, access, alteration, duplication, destruction, disclosure, loss or theft of your personal information. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information.

13. How is Inagene different from other genetic testing kits on the market?
Unlike other genetic tests, Inagene Personalized Insights™ is uniquely focused on providing the most comprehensive test to support decisions related to pain management and related treatments. Personalized Insights™ also includes evaluation of cannabis options. We do not test for disease risk, nor ancestry, nor answer other general genetic questions. Inagene uses its own lab to process all results and does not subcontract to other labs.
14. What can Inagene Personalized Insights™ tell me about my pain management strategy?
Our Personalized Insights™ report offers guidance on which drugs work best for you, and which you should avoid, so you can manage your pain more effectively.
15. Why is it important to share the results with my healthcare professional?
Your Personalized Insights™ report is not intended to take the place of professional medical advice. Sharing your report with your healthcare professional is important so you can receive the medications and treatments that will work best for you, according to your genetic profile. Your healthcare professional may use the information contained in your Personalized Insights™ report for future reference when considering new medications for you. For example, test results should be considered in the context of other clinical variables including age, diet, organ function, other medications prescribed, and compliance in taking medications, as well as the type, stage, and severity of the specific disease being treated, and the disease’s comorbidity with other conditions.
