Opportunities to shape the future of Transform®
Where we started
In 2016, one of our co-founders, Ian Bond, was asked to keep a diary of his COPD symptoms. And he thought there had to be a better way than jotting every symptom down. So together with another of our founders, Dave Taylor, they created a digital solution.
Their work soon attracted the attention of point-of-care diagnostics and lateral flow specialists – and the basis for Transform® emerged.
Where we are now – meet the team
We’ve taken an idea from the drawing board to a successful commercial reality in just a handful of years. We’re friendly, committed to the highest standards – and we can’t wait to help you transform your offer.
