As a frontline patient care provider and medical science research center, keeping UCSF employees and students healthy is of utmost importance. In a need to expand and simplify testing, UCSF worked with Color to create new ways to provide access to COVID testing like distributing testing kits on-site in vending machines.


Saint Joseph’s University

To keep students safe as they returned to campus, especially those living in on- campus residential halls, Saint Joseph’s University partnered with Color to provide multiple testing modalities. Using pre-arrival testing, on-site entry testing, and surveillance testing Saint Joseph’s University is hoping to provide students with college life that’s much closer to normal this spring.

As students returned to campus, Northwestern needed a way to test both undergraduate and graduate students quickly at scale as they arrived. In response Color and Northwestern rolled out increased onsite testing capabilities with Color’s self-administered kits so that students could grab a test kit, complete testing on their own, and drop it off at a designated location, all in less than 3 minutes.
