Hereditary Genetic Testing

Uncover genetic risks and take preventive steps
to protect your health.

What is the HALO PathWay™?

Hereditary genetic testing helps identify genetic risks for certain health conditions, enabling early prevention, detection, and personalized medical care.

The HALO hereditary gene panel tests for genes commonly associated with cancers that run in families, such as breast, prostate, ovarian, endometrial, pancreatic, gastric, and colorectal cancers. It empowers patients to make well-informed decisions about their health and identifies what screening tests are available for earlier cancer detection, when illness is most treatable.

Detect early, act early: Uncover genetic risks and take preventive steps to protect your health.

How long does it take to get test results?

A simple saliva sample will be collected and sent to our molecular laboratory for analysis. Your results will be delivered directly to your provider in about 3 weeks.

Why is hereditary genetic testing important?

If you or any of your family members have ever been diagnosed with cancer, genetic testing can help identify inherited genetic abnormalities that may increase your chances of developing certain types of disease. By understanding the underlying cause behind a history of cancer, doctors and medical professionals can better determine preventive measures and effective treatments for you and your family.

The HALO PathWay™ hereditary genetic test can empower informed decision making, to help you better understand your lifetime risks for certain syndromes.

Is there a cost associated with testing?

Most insurance carriers cover genetic testing services for hereditary cancer. Although each case is unique, the average patient pays nothing out of pocket. HALO Precision Diagnostics assists in obtaining the best possible reimbursement for genetic testing with the goal of making sure you receive the appropriate coverage from your insurance plan.

We are committed to making testing affordable to all patients. Any Questions?
