About the Spartan RX CYP2C19 System
The Spartan RX CYP2C19 System is the first rapid pharmacogenetic test in medicine.(1) It identifies carriers of certain CYP2C19 genetic mutations in 1 hour. The CYP2C19 enzyme metabolizes approximately 15 percent of all prescribed drugs(2), including important drug classes such as antiplatelet therapies, beta blockers, antidepressants, proton pump inhibitors, and anti-epileptics. About 30% of Caucasians, and more than 50% of Asians and Indians carry CYP2C19 gene variants that reduce response to drugs metabolized by CYP2C19.(3,4,5,6)

The Spartan RX CYP2C19 System has FDA 510(k) regulatory clearance for the United States, and CE IVD Mark regulatory approval for Europe and other countries recognizing the CE IVD Mark. For more information, please visit our website at:
