Changing Lives Through DNA Genetic Testing
The AGS Blog & Press Releases

To Our Valued AGS Practitioners & Providers,

 

Like you, AGS has been shifting its business practices to meet these new and unprecedented times. As we all pivot, our focus will continue to be protecting the health and safety of our team members while simultaneously meeting the needs of our valued clients, practitioners, and providers.

As we work together toward that end and to help you provide safe, secure, private health and wellness genetic testing to your clients, patients, and customers, please make note of the following updates:


TEST TURNAROUND TIME
Effective immediately, the turnaround time for report delivery of all AGS Health & Wellness + PGx tests will be 6 to 8 weeks versus our standard of 2 to 3 weeks (the industry average is 8 to 12 weeks). This change comes as we work with our new US laboratory to finalize the validation and substantiation of AGS Health & Wellness Genetic Test chips. This must be done accurately in order to meet CLIA/CAP certification standards and verify the accuracy of all individual test results. While this is an important and lengthy process, it is essential to our mission and upholding the highest data security standards.

New Year’s resolutions are the perfect opportunity for all those who have failed to start making the changes that they said they would make throughout this past year. In our post from last New Year's Blog, we quoted facts that approximately 48% of people have had some success with resolutions, while the other 42% have not, and fail every year. Well, now’s your chance to sit down and prepare a list of important lifestyle changes you want to make -- and we're here to help.

On November 4th, I had a great time with Lina de Florias and Jaime Cerreta on their Good Morning Arizona Live (3TV)program. Jaime called her AGS genetic test report her very own “Body Owner’s Manual.”  I loved it!  That is exactly what it is.  Our genetic tests take the guesswork and weeks of trials out of finding the right food, supplements, and exercise.  The feeling of knowing what your body needs is extremely empowering.
