Doctors order Color
Color’s clinical-grade tests are ordered by a physician who reviews your information to decide if testing is right for you, or your own physician.
After you provide a sample, Color can connect you with a provider from an independent physician network who will review your information and can order testing on your behalf. If any questions arise, they will contact you.
Clinical grade and actionable
Color’s cancer, heart, and medication health areas focus on genetic results that have clear next steps for you and your doctor*.
Easy and supported
Color can send reports to additional doctor’s offices securely, and provide questions for you to ask your doctor.
What you need to know
Genetics is complicated. Here are some really important things you should know about genetic testing.
Don’t make health decisions without your doctor.
Making changes without your doctor, like stopping medications or skipping mammograms, could do more harm than good. A genetic counselor can give you tools for talking with your doctor.
Your results may change over time.
Genetics is a growing body of knowledge that changes rapidly. If advancements in the underlying science affect your results, we’ll update your report.
Genetics is important, but it doesn’t explain everything.
Most cancers, heart diseases, and drug reactions are not inherited, and are strongly influenced by other factors like age, lifestyle, and environment.
Taking a test is personal – we work hard to keep
your information secure.
Color abides by HIPAA, the same standards doctors use in safeguarding your information. And you
have choices, like who you share your results with.
