"After the test was done, I reviewed my results with my primary care doctor who ran some tests and found a blood clot in my lung!
That test literally saved my life!"
- Donna M., SC
"I learned that it’s a genetic issue and that my daughter and I have an increased risk of getting cancer. After the test, my daughter had a large mass removed from her uterus."
-Virdie B., TX
"Huge surprise when my results showed that I carry a gene
mutation associated to Li-Fraumeni Syndrome. I am considering myself lucky that
I haven’t experienced cancer yet since most with this syndrome experience cancer
by the age of 60. I can now share this knowledge with my Doctor and family
members as a directive for preventative care.”
- D. Grant, UT
Our Genetics Lab
Apollo owns and operates a CAP and CLIA certified laboratory located on the Louisiana State University campus in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The lab specializes in next generation DNA genetic testing such as hereditary Cancer Genetic Screenings (CGX) and Pharmacogenetics Genetic Screening (PGX). These tests can help determine whether a person is at risk for life-threatening side effects or disease. This lab is one of only a few CAP and CLIA certified labs with next generation sequencing technology capabilities in the country and is licensed in 48 states.
Primary Care Physician
One of Apollo's core values is to ensure the candidates' primary care physician is always involved in the request for our genetic lab services. There are two ways that we can develop that relationship with the physician, both of which are inter-related.
Apollo currently has a Medicare number and in addition, is actively contracting with various state Medicaid programs and Medicare Advantage plans.
