Color Hereditary Heart Health Test
Color launched its Hereditary Heart Health Test this week. Priced at $249, the test gauges mutations in 30 genes associated with serious hereditary heart conditions that, if detected, can be monitored more closely and treated. The American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics supports testing for these genes. Color said that if patients have mutations in these genes, they can work with their doctors to create a plan to monitor and prevent potentially serious heart events.

According to the firm, the assay only requires five steps and eliminates the need for microaerophilic incubation, supplements, blood, organic solvents, or autoclaving the broth. 3M noted that the assay is able to perform up to 96 tests of multiple types in a hour-long run.
