Support every step of the way

At Invitae, we believe in the importance of understanding what your genetic information means for you and for your family members.

That's why we offer resources and support throughout, including expert genetic counseling.

Why genetic counseling?

Because your genetic information should be personalized. To you.

We have an experienced team of genetic counselors ready to support you. Invitae genetic counseling consultations are offered by telephone or video—before, during, and after testing.

Physician referral is required, so ask your doctor if you would like to speak with one of Invitae’s genetic counselors.

Currently, genetic counseling services are available for cancer and cardiology genetic testing. 

Register to share data and help advance genetic research

Invitae believes that genetic information is more valuable when shared. Patients can help advance important clinical research by registering with one of the groups listed below. These patient registries seek to better understand the associations between genes and disease.

Participation is completely voluntary, and Invitae will never share patient-specific health information without permission.


The Prospective Registry of Multiplex Testing (PROMPT) is a research registry for people who have had multi-gene panel testing for hereditary cancer. It’s a collaborative effort across academic institutions and commercial labs to answer important questions about genetic tests. Joining will help researchers quickly learn information that will help develop the best way to manage risks associated with alterations in cancer susceptibility genes.



GenomeConnect is the patient participation portal for the ClinGen Resource, a National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded project that is building a genomic knowledge base to improve patient care for all hereditary conditions. GenomeConnect was developed as a tool to connect people who are interested in sharing de-identified genetic and health information to improve the understanding of genetics and health.


Inherited Cancer Registry (ICARE)

ICARE is a registry-based research study and represents a clinical-research-community partnership among medical practitioners, researchers, and members of the general public. The common goal is to improve the lives of patients and families at risk for inherited cancer susceptibility.


The ABOUT Network

Affiliated with the Facing Our Risk Empowered (FORCE) patient advocacy group, the ABOUT Network is for patients with an alteration in any gene associated with hereditary breast and ovarian cancer (HBOC) syndrome. The ABOUT Network’s goal is to enroll as many Americans as possible, including those with HBOC and unaffected carriers, into research studies to improve health outcomes.

The Invitae Family History Tool

At Invitae, we believe that capturing a complete and accurate family history is critical to interpreting genetic results. That’s why we offer a free digital tool that allows you to map out your family health history.

The Family History Tool makes it easier to trace your family medical history quickly, completely, and accurately. The integrated patient questionnaire will auto-generate your family history to save you time.

Get started with your own family history today.

Breast cancer information tool.

talk with a doctor

As part of our ongoing support for patients, we have developed a variety of tools and information to guide you through the genetic testing experience.

This breast cancer information tool is one example of the educational support we provide. It is intended for an individual who is scheduled for a genetic counseling services appointment with Invitae and is interested in our cancer genetic testing services.
