A healthtech innovator and former Rewired Pitchfest winner has secured £4.5million in its latest round of funding.
TestCard, which won Pitchfest in 2019, is a combination of a non-invasive urine test kit with an accompanying mobile application that turns a mobile phone’s camera into a clinical grade scanner.
Speaking to Digital Health News Chris Craig-Wood, chief commercial officer at TestCard, called the £4.5million fundraise a “spectacular success” for the company which will ‘catapult the business forward’.
“We’re going to use the funds to launch new products which we’re developing. We are also looking to expand across Europe and then into the rest of the world as well as building out our team,” he added.
With the aim of giving people control over their health and taking further strain off the NHS, Testcard’s at-home UTI testing kit turns a smartphone camera into a clinical grade scanner, providing immediate results which can then be shared with a GP or other healthcare professional.
