Lumea Inc., a leader in integrated digital pathology solutions, is pleased to announce our partnership with Invitae Corporation (Invitae), a leading medical genetics company. This partnership will give Lumea diagnostic platform users access to easy one-click conditional ordering of Invitae tests.
The Lumea platform has revolutionized a new era of efficiency, timely diagnosis, and expedited treatments with its cutting-edge digital genetic test ordering and specimen submission process during digital sign-out. Its intuitive interface streamlines processes, ensures accuracy, and leaves behind error-prone methods, while significantly reducing overall turnaround time.
Hereditary cancer genetic testing from Invitae provides actionable insights that may inform patient care, revealing a patient’s risk for disease and may help inform potential next steps. This partnership will enable clinicians quicker access to Invitae’s flexible testing options, allowing more patients who can benefit to be tested.
“Our conditional ordering has enabled genetic testing companies to reduce their turnaround time dramatically, getting key information to clinicians faster. When dealing with cancer management, a few days is a big deal for those patients and their families,” said James Thackeray, Lumea’s Chief Commercial Officer.
“We are thrilled to partner with Lumea to provide even more patients with access to hereditary cancer genetic testing, potentially reaching urology clinics in their system,” said Melanie Duquette, Vice President of Sales at Invitae. “This partnership will help streamline the ordering process – making it easier for clinicians to order tests and for patients to obtain timely and valuable genetic insights to help inform management of their disease.”
