Comprehensive genetic insights for your patients

  • Proactive genetic testing offers healthy adults without a strong personal or family history of disease an opportunity to learn about how their genes could potentially impact their health.

  • Invitae offers three testing options that analyze up to 147 genes that are well-established indicators of a significantly increased risk of developing hereditary cancers, cardiovascular conditions, and other medically important disorders.

  • Our diagnostic-grade tests are performed in a CLIA- and CAP-certified laboratory and reviewed by our team of Ph.D. scientists, lab directors, and board-certified genetic counselors.

Invitae has found that 16.1%
of healthy adults carry a serious health-related risk1

7.2% of the positive results were clinically significant in well-known cardiovascular and cancer risk genes.

Additional medically important disorders with
a higher population incidence were represented
in the remaining 8.9% of positive results.

How it works

Due to the potential health implications of this test, Invitae proactive tests must be ordered by a healthcare provider on behalf of their patients.

Place an order for a proactive test via our online portal. You can use this account to track the progress of your patient's sample and receive results.

Request a free blood or saliva collection kit to collect your patient's specimen.

You will receive an email notification once we receive the specimen and another when the results are ready, typically 10 to 21 days, on average, after the sample is received.

If you or your patient have questions about the results, Invitae offers clinical support services at no additional charge.
