Invitae’s comprehensive tests are the same tests ordered by doctors. When you test with us, you can confidently make health decisions based on your results. Invitae’s tests also include the option to speak with a genetics expert who can help you understand what your results mean for you.

How to initiate your own test | Individuals

Once Invitae receives your sample and test order from your doctor, our laboratory isolates your DNA, the source of your genetic information. Your DNA then goes through a thorough preparation process, and is sequenced using cutting-edge technology called next-generation sequencing (NGS). Invitae sequences each gene a few hundred times to generate reliable, informative data about the genetic changes that have been previously reported or would be expected to cause disease. Our highly trained clinical team evaluates the data generated from your DNA and prepares a report with the results. Invitae will send the report directly to your doctor, who will share it with you.

Invitae’s mission is to make high-quality genetic testing affordable and accessible through every stage of life.

Adult-onset and pediatric disorders
Invitae offers both diagnostic and predictive testing for patients who may have a genetic condition or whose family medical history suggests that they may be facing an increased risk of a genetic condition compared with someone in the general population.

Diagnostic testing is ordered when your healthcare provider wishes to confirm or rule out a disorder based on your symptoms.
Predictive testing is ordered when your healthcare provider is concerned that you may be at increased risk for a genetic condition, even if you aren’t currently showing symptoms. If you have a family history of a specific disease that may be inherited—whether it’s a rare inherited illness or a more common one, like cancer—your doctor may recommend predictive testing to help clarify your risk of developing the disease in the future.
Proactive testing
Invitae’s genetic health screens are a proactive option for healthy adults who want to understand their DNA and focus on prevention. Test results have a clear medical basis and are clinically actionable.

Reproductive and family health testing
Invitae offers a range of reproductive and family health testing options. These include:

Carrier screening
to determine the risk of passing a genetic condition on to a child, providing actionable next steps for a couple’s reproductive journey

Non-invasive prenatal screening (NIPS)
to determine if your child has an increased risk for common genetic conditions, like Down Syndrome

Preimplantation genetic testing
to identify appropriate embryos for transfer and optimize IVF outcomes

Prenatal diagnostic testing
to evaluate a pregnancy for fetal chromosomal abnormalities

Pregnancy loss analysis
to determine if a miscarriage, fetal death, or stillbirth was due to a fetal chromosomal abnormality
