"We are very pleased by the acceleration of our business in 2020, particularly in light of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the healthcare system throughout the year," said Sean George, Ph.D., co-founder and chief executive officer of Invitae. "Our results underscore the strength of our customer relationships, our continued ability to execute and the benefits of the investments we've made in expanding our menu, services and platform. The growth in testing during this time of unrelenting stress on the healthcare system further demonstrates the expanding value genetic information is providing patients as they and their physicians face health challenges and decisions."
