A start-up with alumni and an advisory panel from the University of Bath, we have unique access to some ground breaking ideas.
biotIP receives Government funding for device to improve pandemic test-and-track response capability
The grant will fund an accurate and novel real-time platform that will revolutionise the government’s current track and trace programme. For the first time, the user will see an immediate result on a test stick similar to that used for a home pregnancy test, but integrated electronics powered by the user’s smartphone will allow simultaneous transmission of the result to a remote monitoring body.
Work will begin immediately on a prototype which will be scheduled for delivery this autumn with the aim of starting accelerated production in late Q4
Founded out of the University of Bath in 2019, biotIP is a bio-device and sensor company created specifically to develop intellectual property with a view to its commercialisation. Our principal aim is to take great academic ideas out of the laboratory into the real world.
We are ready to partner with agri, Pharma, diagnostic companies and manufacturers to take our IP to commercialisation.
