News on urine-based diagnostic testing.

The Dip.io technology uses a smartphone's camera to capture high-quality images of a patient's urinalysis results and immediately send it off for clinical diagnosis.

The award will go toward the development of MicrobeDx's technology for detecting the presence of bacteria in clinical urine specimens and to which antibiotics they are susceptible.

BacterioScan has signed a sales and distribution agreement for the system with Fisher Healthcare.

Patients can perform urinalysis at home using Healthy.io's smartphone-based kit, which immediately sends the data to a database for clinical interpretation.
