The first step in getting tested with IGeneX is to order a test collection kit. Choose between a Blood, Urine, or Miscellaneous kit, depending on the test you will be doing. The Blood Kit is the most common, and works with 95% of tests. Doctors can order unlimited quantities of kits at no charge. Patients are required to deposit $20, which is applied to the testing fees.


“Doctors told me it was just ‘stress’ or ‘All in my head’, but I finally figured it out and you can too. …… The best lab to do this is called IGeneX.”
