FARGO -- Sanford Imagenetics is now offering genetic testing and counseling at its primary care clinics in North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota.

Primary care physicians are able to use the results of the Sanford Chip genetic testing to help patients find which medications will work best for them and help them assess their personal risks of various diseases, including breast cancer.

The model also offers genetic counseling for patients and guidance for how to navigate their results. Genetic counselors are on hand to help people understand the medical, psychological and familial effects of genomics in a disease process.

One blood test provides information on both genetic risk for disease and effective medications at a $49 out-of-pocket cost. Tests are ordered and the results are managed by a Sanford primary care provider.
