At Colorimetrix we digitise analogue colorimetric tests. How we do this? We can turn any smartphone into a portable spectrophotometer by using its camera and a mathematical algorithm. This way we read and interpret concentration values of the substances we measure on any colorimetric test (strips, dipsticks, lateral-flow tests, microplates, solution based assays).

Our technology’s advantage:

  • No hardware needed
  • Works on any high-end smartphone
  • Easy to use
  • Test results available in real time
  • Comparable accuracy to commercial readers
  • Very competitive pricing
  • Immediate access to the cloud
  • Analytics, trends, insights on the measurements


This technology can have a big impact on the performance of rapid medical diagnostics on the ground throughout the world [...] making medical examinations accessible in remote and underprivileged areas.
