Genetic testing & counseling

Color offers one of the most accessible, clinical-grade genetic testing services available today, analyzing genes associated with risk for common cancers and heart conditions — and how the body may process certain medications.

Genomics Research

Color offers an end-to-end solution to enable researchers to enroll participants into research studies and return clinical genetic results. We work with researchers to support the research needs of their community.

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

Our CAP-accredited and CLIA-certified laboratory uses 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 genetic tests, and all genetic variants were detected with >99% sensitivity and 100% concordance. To read our technical validation papers, peer-reviewed publications,and research posters, visit our Research page.

Quality-checked

The quality of every sample is checked multiple times as it moves through the sequencing process and as the data is interpreted. A board-certified medical geneticist or pathologist reviews every result before it is released.

State-of-the-art variant classification

Color’s infrastructure provides our team the ability to work quickly and efficiently as they classify variants according to the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) guidelines, and integrate new data to re-evaluate variants over time.

Secondary confirmations

Likely pathogenic and pathogenic variants, including single nucleotide variants, insertions and deletions, and structural variants, are confirmed by an alternative technology according to Color’s internal protocols.*

Digital activation and engagement

We provide a suite of services, tools, and expertise to help you enroll 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.

* Certain exceptions apply. Variants will not be confirmed if, after testing, there is insufficient DNA available for secondary confirmation. 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.
