Once you decide to proceed with testing and your doctor has ordered your test, you will need to provide a DNA sample. Usually, this means either a blood sample or a saliva sample.
- If you choose to submit a saliva sample, your doctor can request that Invitae ship a saliva sample collection kit to your doctor’s office or to your home. For more information on how to provide a saliva sample, please see this FAQ.
- If you choose to submit a blood sample, your doctor can arrange to have your blood drawn.
- If you are located in the US or Canada, you can also request that Invitae arrange for a blood draw, either at your doctor’s office or in your own home, at no additional charge. To request this service, contact Invitae’s Client Services team.
