The Color COVID-19 testing platform supports testing of various types, including at multiple laboratories.

Color may also use its own laboratory facilities to conduct testing. Information on Color’s FDA Emergency Use Authorized (EUA) COVID tests can be found below.

For all laboratory tests, the laboratory where testing is completed and the testing modality is listed in the methodology and limitation section on each individual lab report. Please refer to your lab report and the patient fact sheets for FDA EUA molecular tests for SARS-CoV-2 on the FDA website.

For at-home antigen diagnostic tests supplied through Color, please refer to the manufacturer’s information and applicable patient fact sheets. Patient fact sheets for all FDA EUA antigen diagnostic tests for SARS-CoV-2 can be found on the FDA website.

Consent for COVID-19 Testing

I consent to COVID-19 testing. If consenting for my child or another person, I certify that I am authorized to provide consent on behalf of the tested person as the person’s representative or legal guardian.

A sample will be collected by inserting a small swab into both nostrils, or another minimally invasive method. The sample will be tested for the virus that causes COVID-19. The most common risks from a nasal swab are mild pain or discomfort, a little gagging, or a minor nosebleed. As with any medical test, there is the potential for false positive or false negative test results. More information about COVID-19 testing is available at

Test results will be returned to me, the ordering physician, certain government agencies for public health purposes, testing partners as needed, and if applicable, in accordance with the HIPAA authorization I provide. Specimens and data may be used by Color and Color partners as described in Color’s Privacy Policy.

This consent is valid for multiple tests and ongoing testing, unless I terminate further participation in a testing program by emailing
