You and your doctor will select the disorders that you should be tested for.
Provide a blood or saliva sample in your doctor's office or collect your saliva sample at home.
Your results will be ready in 10-21 days, on average, 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.
