A home testing kit that allows people to diagnose common conditions using the camera on their mobile phone has secured £4.5m in funding to expand internationally.
Founded in the UK, TestCard aims to give people control over their health and take the strain off the National Health Service (NHS). Its UTI test kit consists of a set of testing strips and a smartphone app that turns the phone’s camera into a clinical grade scanner, providing results instantly that can then be shared with a doctor or other healthcare professional.
The investment, which has been secured via the venture capital firm West Hill, will be used for new product development, advancing regulatory applications, international expansion and further product launches. It will also help bridge the business through to its Series ‘A’ round, anticipated for the second quarter of 2021.
