December 2, 2014 Invitae receives accreditation for its laboratory from the College of American Pathologists
SAN FRANCISCO, December 2, 2014 – Invitae Corporation, a genetic information company, announced that it has received accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP).  The CAP accreditation is awarded to facilities that meet the highest standards of quality in laboratory services. According to the Commission on Laboratory Accreditation, the U.S. government recognizes the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, which began in the early 1960s, as being equal-to or more-stringent-than the government’s own inspection program.  During the CAP accreditation process, inspectors perform an on-site inspection and examine the laboratory’s records and quality control of procedures for the preceding two years. CAP inspectors also examine laboratory staff qualifications, equipment, facilities, safety program and records, as well as overall management.  "Receiving CAP accreditation is an important recognition of our laboratory as we continue to advance our goal to

August 12, 2014 Invitae Offers PALB2 Testing, Providing Clinicians with a Reliable, Fast, Affordable Option for Patients
SAN FRANCISCO - August 12, 2014 - Invitae Corporation, a genetic information company, offers PALB2 testing, providing clinicians with a reliable, fast and affordable option for their cancer patients. Available with a turnaround time of approximately three weeks, the test includes full gene sequencing and deletion/duplication analysis. The test is globally available and is priced at $1,500 in the United States. A recent multinational study provides compelling evidence that PALB2 is a high-risk breast cancer susceptibility gene (Antoniu et al, N Engl J Med 2014; 371:497-506; DOI: 10.1056/NEJMoa1400382). This landmark study estimates the lifetime breast cancer risk for female carriers of truncating mutations in this gene to be between 33%–58%, depending on the specific family history of the patient. Due to the high lifetime risk for breast cancer in PALB2 loss-of-function mutation carriers, the authors support the inclusion of PALB2 when testing patients from high-risk breast cancer
