Invitae offers both diagnostic and predictive testing. Diagnostic testing is performed to genetically confirm a disease that your doctor suspects you might have, based on your symptoms. Predictive testing involves performing genetic testing to determine your future risk of developing a disease or condition. 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 clarify your risk of developing the disease in the future.
Invitae also offers proactive testing, which provides healthy individuals with the opportunity to learn more about their potential risks for certain genetic conditions.
