About the GX Sciences Lab:
GX Sciences was formed to enable and assist clinicians in the field of Personalizing Medicine. With its core being in Nutrigenomics (NGx), GX Sciences uses innovative platforms such as its proprietary software to assist in offering health solutions based on genetic outcomes. Our “eco” system is comprised of exceptional services standards, innovative solutions and offerings, widespread adoption of clients, and a mantra of advancement to Personalized Medicine.
The GX Sciences Laboratory is a CLIA approved and COLA accredited advanced testing facility located in Austin, Texas. Although our core competency is NutriGenomic and PharmacoGenomic genetic testing, we offer additional advanced precision testing via our Microsampling devices. Currently, GX Sciences serves over 500 clinicians in over 40 states, as well as numerous clients internationally. GX Sciences is proud to be leading the field in personalizing medicine. HIPAA compliance is also paramount at our company / lab.
GX Sciences chose Thermo Fisher and Life Technologies as its core testing platform and partnership. This partnership has allowed the company scale in areas of genetics, clinical chemistry, and other advanced testing. As the company continues its growth path, its operations focus on Lean Six Sigma processes throughout all areas of the facility allowing the company to achieve typical turnaround times of 5-7 business days for genetic testing results. Founded by Kendal Stewart, MD and Kara Stewart-Mullens, this the state-of-the-art facility has opened the world of Nutrigenomics and Pharmacogenomics to all types of medical clinicians at an affordable price.
In August 2020, GX Sciences announced that it would become a core addition to Fagron, a leading, publicly traded global pharmaceutical compounding company, focusing on testing in the North American market. GX Sciences decision to become a part of the Fagron family aligned heavily on Fagron’s values and core tenants encompassing the mission of personalizing medicine, and in fact their main slogan is: “Together We Create The Future of Personalized Medicine”. GX Sciences, a Fagron Company, is strengthened in so many ways from the acquisition, and continues to be an Austin, TX based lab that prioritizes trust, quality, and speed of execution amongst it’s valued providers and their valued patients.
“The goal of the GX Sciences’ panels is to scientifically evaluate and nutritionally support the functional uniqueness of each patient in a precision medicine approach. Many physicians can find genetics, biochemistry and even nutritional recommendations quite frustrating. My goal for all providers is to make biochemistry fun again and to simplify and consolidate the ongoing medical knowledge of functional nutrition into an easy-to-use clinical tool that helps each patient and practitioner alike.”
