Color Genomics

Working with clinical decision support vendor ActX, the suburban Chicago health system has seen strong demand for PGx and genetically informed preventive care.

The MAGENTA and ProGen trials showed that video-based and online education can increase the number of patients getting tested compared to traditional approaches.  

The test does not require thermal cycling and uses a colorimetric readout, making it more amenable to high-throughput automation and rapid scale-up, the company said.

Color is opening a lab dedicated to SARS-CoV-2 testing and adapting its software infrastructure to enable physicians to order tests and return results.

Many companies and counselors see the COVID-19 pandemic as a catalyst for moving germline risk testing into a digital-first healthcare model.

After pilot programs showed patients and physicians are interested in genomics, NorthShore is working on "hardwiring" genetics into routine care.

The financing round comes as Color expands its partnerships with healthcare systems and builds out a national genetic counseling resource for NIH's All of Us program.

The multistate rural health system will adopt Color technology to move to NGS and enhance online engagement for its Imagenetics clinical genomics program.

CNBC reports Apple is partnering with Color Genomics to offer its employees free DNA screening for disease.

The researchers believe their findings could be used to change how patients' risk for breast cancer, colon cancer, or heart disease is calculated.
