Color offering affordable genetic testing for hereditary risks

Techstination feature for Tuesday, May 1, 2018

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.   Color is the name of a personal health service that lets you order genetic testing for heart health, cholesterol and a number of common hereditary cancers.      The tests typically cost 249 dollars….but through October….the BRCA test for breast or ovarian cancer is priced at 99 dollars.    The tests are done at home through saliva samples…and they include free genetic counseling.   VP of Clinical Operations Scott Topper…

“Genetic counseling sessions are free with all of our tests.   You can call up as many times as you like and ask questions.  It is really an incredible group of people, an incredible team of genetic counsellors that we built.  Very dedicated, very education and then very supportive.”

The knowledge can be helpful in making lifestyle and health care decisions.  You can learn more at
