An end-to-end platform for population health research

At Color, we are committed to supporting research that aims to engage populations at scale, connect underserved communities with care, and inform community health solutions.

We make it work for researchers
doing the work.


User-Centric Digital Engagement Platform

Our platform provides your research participants with a user-friendly experience that can help lead to faster and higher rates of recruitment. Color supports enrollment and e-consent of participants for both clinical and research purposes. We also enable longitudinal participant engagement and data collection, while providing return of clinical, genetic results, access to genetic counselors and clinical pharmacists, and information and recommendations tailored to their health and risks.

Advanced Bioinformatics and Machine Learning Tools

We can process millions of variants to surface genomic — phenotypic associations at a very high speed and develop advanced genomics algorithms, such as polygenic scores, that can be used in research applications.

How does it work?

Design your study

We’ll work with you to design a study specific to the research needs of your community. Our goal is to make this a collaborative process and to help you create implementation workflows and strategies that work for your organization.

Clinicians Test Hereditary Cancer

Distribute genetic test kits

You can choose to have genetic test kits shipped directly to your study participants’ homes (for US-based studies only) or participants can provide their sample through in-office collection kits. Each kit comes with all of the sample collection and return shipping materials.

Color Results Clinical Follow-Up

Send back genetic test kits

Once a sample has been collected, the kit can be sent back to our CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited NGS lab. Our team of laboratory technicians, clinical genome scientists, and medical geneticists will process and analyze the sample within 6 to 8 weeks from receipt.

Color Vaccination Status Dashboard

Get results

We will return clinical genetic test reports to you and your research team through a secure platform. You can also choose to return results directly to your participants with the support of Color’s board-certified and licensed genetic counselors.

Additionally, you can request the corresponding sequencing data.

Publication

We will work with you to summarize important results from your study and to create a publication strategy.
