Genetic testing & counseling

Color offers one of the most accessible, clinical-grade genetic testing services available today, analyzing genes associated with hereditary risk information around cancer and heart disease, and genes that can impact medication response. Our advanced lab is CAP-accredited and CLIA-certified, applying technologies to help ensure the integrity of the results we provide.

Color’s lab team, and processes generate results you can trust.

Our CAP-accredited and CLIA-certified laboratory uses the newest technology, including next-generation sequencing, advanced liquid-handling robots, and customized software to ensure the integrity of our results.

Validated

Color performed blinded validation studies to assess the validity of our test, and all our genetic variants were detected with >99% accuracy. To read our validation white papers, published studies, and research posters, visit our Research page.

Quality-checked

The quality of every sample is checked multiple times as it moves through the sequencing and interpretation process. A certified scientist reviews every result before it is released.

Digital activation and engagement

We provide a suite of services, tools, and expertise to help you acquire new patients and activate them into care journeys relevant to them over time. We use a more complete view of patient health, incorporating an individual’s genetics, personal & family health history, and lifestyle & behavior information to surface and recommend specific care or point solutions that patients can take advantage of based on their personal risks.

This can include a range of relevant programs, from reminders about flu shots and annual wellness visits to getting breast and colon cancer screenings, as well as tools to help manage multiple chronic conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure.

Variants called at high confidence (color.com/variantconfidence) will be reported without secondary confirmation if the variant has been confirmed at least three times in previous carriers.
