View Recording

El uso de pruebas genéticas para identificar y caracterizar a pacientes con cáncer hereditario en América Latina ha ido incrementando. El Dr. Ossa nos platicará su experiencia, de más de 9 años, basada en casos clínicos y en sus pacientes.

En este Webinar ustedes aprenderán:

1. La importancia del árbol genealógico para determinar qué panel elegir
2. La forma en la que los genes de alta y mediana penetración cambian el diagnóstico y las decisiones terapéuticas en los casos clínicos
3. Las herramientas disponibles en línea para ayudar a definir las estrategias de la atención médica en pacientes con cáncer hereditario
4. Cómo ordenar una prueba genética e interpretar los resultados
5. Las implicaciones de la genética en la atención médica del paciente y de su familia

Canadian carrier screening simplified

Hana Sroka, MSc, CCGC, CGC (Regional Manager, Canada, Invitae)
June 24, 2020
View Recording

In this webinar, presented by Hana Sroka, MSc, CCGC, CGC, attendees will learn how carrier screening can help patients who are already pregnant or considering pregnancy.

Carrier screening identifies patients who are at increased risk of having a child affected with a genetic disorder, providing actionable information for the next steps of their reproductive journey.


Eligiendo la prueba correcta para el paciente: selección de secuenciación por exoma y paneles genéticos

Seleccionar la prueba genética adecuada para sus pacientes puede ser difícil, especialmente para presentaciones clínicas complejas. Entienda cómo hacerlo con la Consejera Genética Ana Morales mientras discute:
1. Elegir la prueba genética adecuada para su paciente, desde pruebas de un solo gen hasta exomas
2. Maximizar el rendimiento diagnóstico de la secuenciación del exoma
3. Las opciones de pruebas de alta calidad y bajo costo de Invitae, incluidos los programas patrocinados de pruebas
4. Simplificando el proceso de prueba con pedidos en línea y soporte de telemedicina


An in-depth discussion of Invitae's sponsored testing programs: What you need to know

Michelle Fox (MS, LCGC), Michael Hamilton (Chief Privacy Officer), and Gautam Mehta (Commercial Partnerships)
June 16, 2020
View Recording

If you missed our sponsored testing webinar last October, this is your chance to see an updated version and have all your questions answered. Our experts will discuss the details of Invitae's sponsored, no-charge testing programs. They will outline the structure and benefits of the programs and discuss how they are designed to increase access to genetic testing. We will also dive into Invitae's de-identified data sharing policies and share how we protect your patient's personal information. Finally, we will discuss the benefits of the Detect family of sponsored testing programs.

Challenging variant types detected by next-generation sequencing and their contribution to monogenic disease

Swaroop Aradhya, PhD, FACMG, and Dianalee McKnight, PhD, FACMG (Medical Affairs, Invitae)
June 09, 2020
View Recording

NGS has revolutionized genetic testing, but not all NGS approaches are the same. Some may suffer from limitations that reduce or eliminate their sensitivity to certain types of technically challenging variants, and the prevalence of these are not widely understood.

Please join us as we discuss the important aspects of NGS assay design and bioinformatics that can influence analytical sensitivity for a broad spectrum of variant types.

The program, focused on the detection of complex variants, will help learners:

1. Define the types and prevalence of variants that are challenging to detect by next-generation sequencing;

2. Examine aspects of clinical genetic test design that can aid in the accurate detection of challenging variants.


Genetic testing: A cost-effective and accurate diagnostic tool for immunology patients

Britt Johnson, PhD, FACMG (Medical Affairs, Invitae)
June 02, 2020
View Recording

In this webinar, intended for immunologists, Dr. Britt Johnson will share:
1. Information about genetic testing as a direct, cost-effective, and accurate diagnostic tool for your patients
