patients need them most

Genetic testing is a vital aid in diagnosis and treatment

Genetic testing enables you to:

  • Shorten the time to diagnosis

  • Tailor care to your patients’ specific needs, including:

    • Determining which medications may be most effective or contraindicated

    • Reducing or eliminating the need for more invasive testing (i.e., muscle/skin biopsies, CSF studies, EMG/NCV testing)

    • Identifying appropriate clinical trials and emerging therapies

  • Ensure that you don’t miss diagnosing a treatable condition

  • Predict or identify risk of disease for family members

We offer one of the broadest pediatric, metabolic, and neurologic genetic test menus

Panel testing for more than 1,000 genes, including:

Our goal is to provide you and your patients with clinically actionable information—in a single test.

Alnylam Act®: Primary Hyperoxaluria Type 1

Alnylam has partnered with Invitae to offer genetic testing at no charge for individuals who may carry a genetic mutation associated with primary hyperoxaluria type 1, a rare genetic disorder that leads to progressive renal failure and multiorgan damage once the disease advances.
