Genetics is the future of medicine.
TOGETHER WE CAN IMPROVE HEALTHCARE FOR BILLIONS OF PEOPLE.
Invitae is a genetic information company whose mission is to bring genetic information into routine medical practice to improve the quality of healthcare for billions of people.
Specializing in genetic diagnostics for hereditary disorders, Invitae is aggregating the world’s genetic tests into a single service with better quality, faster turnaround time, and a lower price than most single-gene diagnostic tests today.
What’s our plan? It takes three steps:
Make genetic testing more affordable and accessible than ever before.
Build a secure and trusted genome management infrastructure.
Design a new global community for sharing genetic information to advance science and medicine.
Today, we are reinventing genetic testing by lowering the barriers for clinicians and patients to obtain diagnostic genetic information. Together we can improve healthcare for billions of people.
Making genetic testing affordable and accessible.
