Simplicity from beginning to end

Creating a seamless ordering experience

Easy online ordering

Place your order online for more efficient processing, faster report delivery, and access to additional online features. Setting up an account only takes a few minutes, and you can also browse and order directly from our online test catalog.

Online ordering is available for diagnostic testing, exome, proactive testing, and carrier screening. To order other reproductive testing, including preimplantation genetic testing and prenatal diagnosis, please visit the reproductive health catalog for ordering information.

If you prefer to place a paper-based order for panel testing, you can also download our paper test requisition from our Forms page. Please note that there is no paper requisition for the Invitae Boosted Exome, which can only be ordered online.
