Data collection and analysis for remote testing for common disseases, infections, and health conditions that can be self-monitored, for individuals or populations.

Developing world

Remote clinic-on-a-chip, pocket diagnostics and testing, pandemics monitoring and population screening for common disseases, infections, and chronic health conditions.


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.

By quickly getting medical data from the field to doctors or centralised laboratories, it may help slow or limit the spread of pandemics.


Colorimetrix is an app that turns any smartphone into a portable spectrophotometer. It uses an ingeniously designed mathematical algorithm and the smartphone’s camera to automatically report concentration values. It allows semi-quantitative measurement of commercial and research colorimetric test strips, dipsticks, lateral-flow tests, microplates, and solution based assays. All this thanks to its uniqueness:

The test results may be stored in the smartphone, analysed for trends, or emailed to professionals. Using this tool we can bring rapid on-site screening when there is a lack of resources, fast responses are needed, or connectivity could make a difference. Thus, integrating analog testing solutions to the digital world.

Colorimetrix Technology

Our aim is to bring the world's chemical and biological signatures to the digital world, we do this by digitizing analog chemical and biomedical tests. This mobile reading technology has not only been tested, but also validated by experimenters in laboratories at the University of Cambridge. Do you want to learn more about our technology?
