What to Expect from a
Pre-Test Consultation

Pre-test consultation

Talk with an expert by phone or video at no cost before your test is ordered. We review your personal and family health history, answer any questions you may have, and confirm that you meet eligibility criteria for Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals sponsored testing program.

Easy ordering

If you meet the criteria for the program, then your no-charge Ambry HTG-Select test order will be placed by one of our physicians at no cost. We will also coordinate the convenient collection of a DNA sample — usually through a saliva kit that is sent directly to you.

After the saliva testing kit arrives, complete the test kit instructions and provide a saliva sample. Mail the test kit back in the pre-paid envelope. Results will be ready in 2-4 weeks. Learn more about How Genetic Testing works with Ambry Genetics.
