Being healthy means being informed

Add to your health toolkit

Like wearing sunscreen or getting your blood pressure checked at the doctor, genetic testing is another important tool to help manage your health and lifestyle.

Your genes can give you clues into your risk of developing disease and—if it turns out that you have an increased risk of a condition—there are steps you can take to help you stay healthy.

How testing helps

Eating right, exercising, and getting routine checkups (like an annual well-woman visit) are great for the average person. But what if you’re not average? Your genes can tell you if there’s something more you should be doing to improve your health or stay healthy, including:
  • Lifestyle changes

  • Early action to prevent the onset of disease

  • More frequent or earlier screenings for a particular condition or disease

How testing works

  • Step 1

    Request a test online. An independent clinician will review and approve your order.
  • Step 2

    Provide a saliva sample from the comfort of your home and ship it to our lab.
  • Step 3

    Get your results and share them with your doctor. If you'd like, talk to a genetic counselor at no extra cost.

Find the right test

Invitae offers 3 tests that can tell you if you have a higher risk of developing cancer, heart disease, and other chronic conditions.
