SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Invitae Corporation (NYSE: NVTA), a leading medical genetics company, announced preliminary unaudited full-year 2019 results, driving strong growth in volume and revenues, signaling continued momentum going into 2020. The company accessioned more than 482,000 samples and generated approximately $216 million in revenue in 2019. The company also announced 2020 guidance of more than 725,000 samples accessioned and more than $330 million in revenue, reflecting a more than 50% annual growth in both volume and revenue. Invitae has now provided in-depth medical genetic sequencing for more than one million patients since launch, including more than 750,000 in the past two years.

"Invitae is proving that genetics is a growth story today and for the future, demonstrated by our nearly 60 percent volume growth, more than 45 percent revenue growth and yet another year of executional excellence. As we look to 2020, with new account growth continuing to soar and strong re-order rates, we are confident in our ability to drive growth and, most importantly, increase the number of patients we can help," said Sean George, co-founder and chief executive officer of Invitae. "Before Invitae began, medical genetics was considered a niche diagnostic offering, available at high prices to the sickest few. We envisioned a world where all patients would have access to in-depth genetic information to inform their healthcare. We are making that vision a reality, having now provided answers to more than one million patients."
