Need more answers after panel testing?

Simply order more genes for your patient at no additional charge

Broaden your search

Invitae's re-requisition service is offered at no additional charge for diagnostic panel testing and provides the flexibility you need to order the right genes at the right pace.

Depending on your patient’s clinical and family history, it may be appropriate to begin with a smaller panel test and then expand your search to a broader panel if desired.

If you don’t find the answers you’re looking for with your first panel test, you may order more genes within the original clinical area. The timeline to place this order has been temporarily extended to 150 days (from 90 days). Our service includes:

  • no additional charge for the new test report
  • no new specimen required (if a positive result is found, a new specimen may be required for confirmation testing)
  • average 10–21 calendar day turnaround time for the new results

Who is eligible?

A case is eligible for one re-requisition at no additional charge if:

  • the original order was for a diagnostic panel test
  • the re-requisition order is placed within 150 days (temporarily extended from 90 days) of the original report release
  • the genes added are within the same clinical area as the initial order and were available at the time of the original order

Beyond 150 days (temporarily extended from 90 days) from the original report release date, the patient will be billed $250 for a re-requisition, even if the genes are within the original clinical area. In addition, a new specimen will be required.

Re-requisition is based on a standard Invitae test. Family members tested under Invitae’s family variant testing program are not eligible for re-requisitions at no additional charge.

Please note, we are unable to offer re-requisition from a panel test to exome testing. If you would like to proceed with the Invitae Boosted Exome, please submit a new order and specimen(s).

How do I order a re-requisition?

Sign In

Sign in to your account and view your orders and reports.

  • Select the order for which you would like to place a re-requisition.
  • If the order is eligible for a re-requisition, you will see an option on the order status page to “Add re-requisition.”
  • Select the panel you would like to order.
  • Authorize with your initials and click Complete order.

Alternatively, you can also specify your re-requisition request at the time you place your initial order. In the online portal or the paper requisition form, you will see an option to reflex to additional tests either when the initial test is negative* or regardless of the initial results.

Can I add genes in a different clinical area?

You can order additional genes within another clinical area at any time. These orders will be billed separately as a new order and will require a new specimen.

*The initial test is considered negative in the event of no pathogenic, likely pathogenic, likely pathogenic low penetrance, or increased risk allele results.
