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.
