TRANSFORMING URINE TESTING
Our CEO and Founder Oliver first identified the opportunity to transform urine testing when talking to a local GP.
Oliver realised that urinalysis has remained unchanged since the 1960’s. He found that clinicians work with an unhygienic process, with exposure to infected urine through the dipping and decanting of open urine samples. He observed that test strips are read a varying intervals and these manual readings are open to the subjectivity of the human eye. These results are often discarded without recording all available data. When data is recorded it is manually transcribed to the patient notes in an inconsistent and sometimes in comprehensive format. Furthermore tests are being carried out sporadically between consultations due to time pressures and the unpredictability of receiving samples from patients.
CARE BY DESIGN
Oliver identified a significant opportunity to improve clinician experience and confidence in urine testing at point-of-care, which could potentially reduce the number of samples being sent for further laboratory analysis. He also saw the potential of more consistent data collection improving predictive healthcare and antimicrobial stewardship.
Motivated by his background and interest in human centred design, Oliver continued to work closely with clinicians to design a more effective and efficient alternative to manual testing.
The result of collaborative research and development was Urine Testing System™, the world’s first closed point-of-care urine test. Urine Testing System™ supports more accurate, hygienic, efficient and affordable digital testing.
