COVID-19 Viral Testing​

Developed by The Avera Institute for Human Genetics, our PCR diagnostic panel is used for identifying the presence of COVID-19. Our highly sensitive test is validated for the detection of nucleic acid from the SARS-CoV-2 virus.*

Our test is physician-ordered through a nationwide physician network and tested at the CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited Avera Institute for Human Genetics.

Avera Institute for Human Genetics’ Accelerated Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) Summary

*COVID-19 Viral Testing from The Avera Institute for Human Genetics (AIHG), provided by Invenio Genetics, offers a FDA Emergency Use Authorization approved test, as well as a CLIA/CAP Laboratory Developed test. This means that while the laboratory performing this test has validation data to support offering this test, neither have been approved or cleared by the FDA. This test is for the detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 (i.e., the COVID-19 virus), and not for any other virus or pathogen. The FDA Emergency Use Authorization test is only authorized during the duration of the COVID-19 emergency declaration by federal regulators.

Fitness & Nutrition

Genetics is an important factor in the bigger picture of fitness and nutrition.

GeneFolio Fitness & Nutrition is an analysis that looks at over 250 genetic variations related to 20 fitness traits and 30 nutrition and diet factors, such as how you respond to exercise or your tendency for certain muscle injuries, as well as how your body breaks down certain nutrients, vitamins and minerals.

This GeneFolio analysis gives you informed reasons to help you design fitness goals that are smart for you, as well as make nutritional changes to improve your well-being.

This analysis does not replace your provider’s recommendations, but may help in choosing a fitness and nutrition plan that fits you best.

Medication Analysis

GeneFolio Medication Analysis is a DNA test that looks at key genes that can affect how your body processes dozens of medications used to treat a variety of medical conditions.

The results may help you and your doctor make informed decisions about which medication may be optimal for you.

The way your body responds to medications depends on many factors, including your DNA. For example, if you have never taken a medication for anxiety or depression, you and your doctor can use the results of the GeneFolio Medication Analysis test to assist in determining which medication to start first. Or, if a medication did not work well for you in the past or you experienced side effects, your doctor may consider your DNA results along with other health factors to adjust the dose or choose a different medication that’s better suited for you

.

This test does not replace your doctor’s recommendations, but may help you and your doctor in choosing a medication that fits you best. Do not discontinue or make changes in your current medications without your healthcare professional’s guidance.

Medication Analysis

  • Learn about how your body metabolizes medications and advocate for your health and medication choices with your physician . Nearly every person has an affected genetic result which may impact medication metabolism.
  • For certain medications, if your genetics suggest poor (slow) or ultrarapid (very fast) metabolism your provider may need to change the medication to avoid the risk that the medication may not work as intended or cause unwanted side effects.
