You and your doctor will select the disorders that you should be tested for.
Your doctor's office will draw a blood sample or collect a saliva sample and ship it to our laboratory for analysis.
Your results will be ready in 10-21 days from sample receipt and are easily accessed through the online portal.
Discuss your results with one of our genetic counselours, your doctor, or both. Schedule an appointment to speak with a board-certified genetic counselour through our online portal.*
*Offered for patients in the US and Canada only. In other countries, your doctor can consult with an Invitae genetic counselor.
A positive result means that a disease-causing variant was found, and you are a carrier of one or more of the disorders tested. Being a carrier typically does not affect your own health; however, it does mean that there is an increased risk of having a child with that disorder. The next step is usually to test your partner. Our genetic counselors are also available to discuss your specific risks and concerns.
A negative result means that no disease-causing variants were identified for any of the disorders tested. A negative test provides reassurance because the chance of you having a child with any of the tested disorders is reduced. However, no test can detect all carriers, so there is still a small chance, called a residual risk, of being a carrier. Our genetic counselors are available to discuss your specific risks and concerns.
