Our Story

Diagnosing anaemia from smartphones; non-invasive, inexpensive, and fast.

We develop direct on smartphone and clip-on devices for consumers and medical service providers to measure haemoglobin. Anaemia is the number one cause of burden-free years lost worldwide (WHO), with 1 in 3 people having anaemia. However, diagnosis requires drawing blood, which is invasive, costly, requires specialised staff and equipment, and is slow… we’re changing that.

Non-invasive

No blood test

Inexpensive

No need for specialised staff

Fast

No waiting for results
