Mobile Urinalysis Startup Healthy.io Raises $60 Million
The company has also received FDA clearance for the use of its smartphone urine test as an aid for diagnosing chronic kidney disease
Healthy.io offers a home kit for urine testing capable of analyzing several different parameters, including a range of infections, chronic illnesses, and pregnancy-related complications through a mobile app. Patients use their smartphone camera to scan the dipstick provided in the kit and Healthy.io’s app uses computer vision and artificial intelligence algorithms to analyze chemical color changes to the dipstick and provide users with instant results.
The company has also announced it has received a second U.S. Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) clearance for its smartphone-based test, this time as an aid for diagnosing chronic kidney disease.
The company will use the funding to expand its clinical tests and market reach, according to a statement by founder and CEO Yonatan Adiri.
