Invitae offers three proactive health tests for healthy adults without a personal or strong family history of genetic conditions, such as cancer and cardiovascular conditions. This test will give you insights into important health risks you may—or may not—have based on genetic variants (sometimes known as mutations or changes). The Invitae Cancer Screen analyzes more than 50 genes associated with hereditary cancers; the Invitae Cardio Screen analyzes more than 70 genes known to be associated with cardiovascular conditions. The Invitae Genetic Health Screen combines tests for all the conditions in the cancer and cardio tests, along with other actionable medical conditions.
If you receive a positive result that indicates you are at an increased risk to develop one of these disorders, you and your doctor can seek early care, regular monitoring, lifestyle modifications, or possibly initiate an early intervention to prevent the onset of disease.
