NewsGuard 100/100 Score

Pathway Genomics (www.PATHWAY.com), a U.S.-based genetic testing company, today announced that Pathway's personal genetic testing kits will be available at Walgreens. Starting in mid-May the Pathway Genomics Insight™ Saliva Collection Kit will be sold at many of Walgreens' nearly 7,500 stores nationwide (with the exception of New York, due to a New York state law). The Insight™ Saliva Collection Kit will retail in the $20 to $30 price range.

“We're revolutionizing the way people access information about their genetics, and through thousands of convenient Walgreens locations, we're making it easier and more affordable than ever before to order a personalized genetic report”

The Insight™ Saliva Collection Kit contains a small saliva collection kit, simple instructions, and a postage-paid envelope that customers can use to send their saliva sample back to the Pathway Genomics laboratory. From there, they simply visit Pathway's web site (www.PATHWAY.com) to create their own secure, password-protected account and order an individualized Genetic Insight™ Report for Drug Response ($79), Pre-Pregnancy Planning ($179), Health Conditions ($179) or a combination of all three ($249). Pathway's Genetics Insight™ Reports offer consumers a convenient and affordable way to learn about their personal genetics.

"We're revolutionizing the way people access information about their genetics, and through thousands of convenient Walgreens locations, we're making it easier and more affordable than ever before to order a personalized genetic report," said Jim Plante, CEO of Pathway Genomics. "The value of knowing how genes play a role in our personal lives, and potentially the lives of our children, is critical for making well-informed health and wellness decisions."

Pathway Genomics believes that personalized genetic reports are quickly becoming a critical component for providing useful insight into a person's DNA make up and genetic data. For instance, a Pathway Genomics Genetic Insight™ Report can provide a wide range of information to help an individual learn about their health and make healthier lifestyle choices.

For example, with a Pathway Genomics Genetic Insight™ Report for prescription medications, people can discover if due to their genetic traits, they are more or less sensitive to a variety of treatment therapies.

Pathway Genomics Genetic Insight™ Reports are ordered separately from the Insight™ Saliva Collection Kit by logging on to www.PATHWAY.com. Reports available include a Drug Response Insight™ for just $79, a Pre-Pregnancy Planning Insight™ for $179, a Health Conditions Insight™ for $179, or a Total Health Insight™ combining three genetic reports for $249.
