Image allows urine testing from home and stores the results in PKB. This allows medically-certified urinalysis for patients from the comfort of their home using a smartphone camera. Clinical-grade results are instantly available to healthcare professionals (and patients) through PKB’s patient portal platform.

Urine testing is the second most conducted test (after blood tests). It is essential for diagnosing urinary tract infections, one of the most common causes of healthcare visits. Traditional methods mean the patient has to travel. The sicker the patient, the more harmful the travel. Infected patients can also infect others whilst in hospital. Clinicians spend time conducting the test and lose time waiting for the patient to arrive - and the later the test happens, the longer diagnosis and treatment takes.

Katherine Ward, Chief Commercial Officer at, said: “Home urinalysis transforms clinical pathways including maternity, renal and cardiology. It allows patients to remain at home and clinicians to safely monitor them."
