If your healthcare provider orders a Tempus|nP test, you will provide a saliva sample for testing.
The sample can be collected in two ways: in the clinic with your provider, or at home if ordered by your provider.
The test will take about 5-10 minutes to complete, from start to finish. Detailed instructions for the saliva collection are provided once your healthcare provider orders the test.
Once Tempus receives your sample, your provider will receive a report of your results in about 2 weeks.
This report will provide your healthcare provider with information about your genes and how they may influence your body’s metabolism of certain medications. This information may help your provider better manage your medications or treatment plan, creating a more personalized care plan for you.
What happens next?
All treatment decisions should be made by your treating provider, and should take into account your full clinical history. These results may help your provider make more informed decisions about choosing or managing your medication(s).
Tempus is committed to providing easy and affordable access to our tests and services.
