Hereditary cancer testing, made accessible

Empower is a genetic test for those who want to know more about their risk of developing cancer, why it might be common in their family, or want to inform treatment options following a cancer diagnosis.

Empower screens for genes associated with increased risk for common hereditary cancers. Our Empower multi-cancer panels include commonly screened-for genes associated with 12+ types of cancer.

Getting Started with the Empower Hereditary Cancer Test

Inherited mutations can significantly increase lifetime risk for developing cancer1

How it works


Provider orders an Empower Hereditary Cancer Test.


Patient provides a blood or saliva sample.


Patients review results with their provider within 2 weeks.

Actionable reports guide next steps, including:

  • Detect cancer at its earliest, most treatable stage
  • Identify risk-reducing medications and surgeries
  • Inform surgical and therapeutic decisions following a cancer diagnosis
  • Notify family members to help them proactively manage hereditary cancer risk

Making the difference for families with hereditary cancer
