treatment for the right diseases.

Why do I need Precision Medicine?

As humans we are all defined by our DNA code, called genetics. We differ by ancestry (race), sex, age, environment and personal family/hereditary health history. Precision Medicine allows us to precisely match each person with the right treatment and healthcare approach based on their DNA, and move beyond a “one-size fits all” approach.
Precision Medicine is anchored in the unique differences in each person and we have developed SNaP-Shot™, a new tool informed by each patient’s genetic and health information in order to support personalized care.
SNaP-Shot™ helps healthcare providers take advantage of our genetics – integrated with other standard health information – to deliver the right treatment and healthcare approach, for the right disease, in the right patient, at the right time.

Targeted SNaP-Shot™ Array Panels

  • Assesses risk for pancreatitis, celiac disease, gallstones, and hypertriglyceridemia, and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
  • Recommended for individuals who may be at risk or have had an attack of pancreatitis.
  • The cost of Pancreatitis SNaP-Shot is $299.  Pancreatitis SNaP-Shot™ + Pharmacogenomics SNaP-Shot (PGx) can be bundled together for $449.

Pancreatic Cancer Biomarker and Risk SNaP-Shot™

Tests genetic variants in multiple genes for:
  • Genes affecting cancer biomarkers: FUT2 and FUT3.
  • 49 variants in genes used to calculate a polygenic risk score (PRS) for pancreatic cancer.
  • 59 SNPs across multiple genes to calculate a polygenic risk score for type 2 diabetes.

Pharmacogenomics SNaP-Shot (PGx)

  • An affordable clinical pharmacogenomics (PGx) test that helps identify how individuals are likely to respond to a medication or a specific medication dose.
  • By analyzing genetic variants from 27 genes, Pharmacogenomics SNaP-Shot™ provides genetic insights to match appropriate medication and dosage to individuals.
  • It can also help avoid adverse drug events that are associated with specific genetic variants.
  • Covers more than 125 medications used to treat a wide range of medical conditions.
  • The cost of Pharmacogenomics SNaP-Shot (PGx) is $249. 

How It Works


Talk To Your Doctor

Talk to your care provider to see if genetic testing may be helpful for your care. If appropriate, they can place an order using our secure online portal.


Create Profile

After the order has been placed, you will receive an email invitation to complete registration for testing.


Collect DNA

A DNA collection kit will be shipped to your home.


Receive Results

Once you send us your sample, we will conduct your genetic analysis. The results will be released to your care provider first, so they can go over the results with you, and then released to you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ariel’s comprehensive genetic testing is ordered by a licensed healthcare provider. Talk to your healthcare provider to see if genetic testing may be appropriate for your care.
For Pancreatitis SNaP-Shot™:
Anyone who has had an attack of acute pancreatitis, especially if they have had more than one attack. In addition, anyone who has signs or symptoms of pancreatic disease such as abdominal pain after eating, chronic diarrhea, abnormal findings on a CT or MRI scan, or an abnormal laboratory test linked to the pancreas. An early evaluation may possibly prevent lengthy and costly evaluations, delayed diagnosis and more complications.
For Pharmacogenomics SNaP-Shot™:
Pharmacogenomics SNaP-Shot™ may be appropriate before a new medication is prescribed, if you have a history of poor drug response or adverse drug reactions, or if you are prescribed multiple medications. It is available as an add-on during the ordering process.
For Pancreatic Cancer SNaP-Shot™:
A genotype based test to screen for risk and support the Early Detection of pancreatic cancer (combining clinical, environmental and genetic risk factors such as polygenic risk scores and familial cancer variants to determine current risk of an occult cancer and to calibrate the level of CA 19-9 and CEA as biomarkers based on FUT 2/FUT3 genetics), and support management in the event of the Early Diagnosis of pancreatic cancer including genetic effects on biomarker levels (CA 19-9 and CEA), chemotherapy pharmacogenetics (PGx e.g. 5-FU, Folfirinox) pain and nausea PGx.”

Pancreatitis SNaP-Shot™ analyzes genes that are related to pancreatitis and its complications, including ABCG8, APOA5, APOB, CASR, CFTR, CLDN2, CTRC, GGT1, HLA-DQA1, HLA-DQB1, LPL, PRSS1, PRSS1-PRSS2, SLC10A2, SLC26A9 and SPINK1

Pharmacogenomics SNaP-Shot™ analyzes data from 27 genes related to drug metabolism (pharmacokinetics) and action (pharmacodynamics), including ABCG2, BCHE, CACNA1S, COMT, CYP2B6, CYP2C19, CYP2C9, CYP2D6, CYP3A5, CYP4F2, DPYD, MT-RNR1, MTHFR, NAT2, NUDT15, OPRM1, RYR1, SLCO1B1, TPMT, UGT1A1, VKORC1. CYP2C, HLA-A, HLA-B, HLA-DQA1, HLA-DRB1, & NAT1

Ariel does offer a payment plan. Contact Ariel customer support to discuss further at (844) 692-7435.

After your order is placed, you will receive an email invitation to register for testing through Ariel’s patient portal.

In the patient portal, you will be asked to complete your account registration, consent and pay for testing. Once this is complete, you have the opportunity to answer some questions about your symptoms, your health history and whether anyone else in your family has similar symptoms.

Ariel will send you an easy-to-use and non-invasive DNA collection kit to your home where you will collect your cheek swab sample and send it back to our laboratory for analysis.

Turnaround time for testing is approximately 4-6 weeks from the time your sample is received in our laboratory.

Don’t hesitate to reach out to Ariel’s Customer Service department, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. EST at (844) 692-7435 or via

A direct pay model offers many benefits for patients including:

  • Eliminates insurance-related administrative costs and delays due to acquiring authorizations (or denials). Turn-around from time of order to results is approximately 4-6 weeks.
  • If a patient has not met their yearly insurance deductible, they may have to pay an even higher fee than the cost of SNaP-Shot™.
  • The patient is welcome to submit the cost for SNaP-Shot™ genetic testing to their insurance for possible reimbursement.

Yes, Ariel provides payment plans for patients who may not be able to afford to pay for their SNaP-Shot™ genetic test all at once. Please call Ariel’s Customer Service at (844) 692-7435 to learn more about this option.
