Bond Digital Health has strengthened its ties to the United States during a visit to Wales by lawmakers from the US Congress.

The Congressional Delegation, consisting of four members of the House of Representatives, was visiting Wales to discuss trade links between the two countries.

As a Wales-based company with US partners, Bond was invited to take part in a business roundtable event with the Congressmen.

Phil Groom, Bond’s Commercial Director, attended the event at Wolf Studios Wales in Cardiff.

He said: “It was a pleasure to be able to share our experiences of doing business in America with such senior lawmakers.

“We’re proud of the relationships we have already built with companies in the US, and we are in active discussions with a number of other US-based firms who are interested in Transform®, our innovative lateral flow test data management system.”

The delegation included congressmen:


  • Rep. Adrian Smith from Nebraska
  • Rep. Ron Kind from Wisconsin
  • Rep. Darin LaHood from Illinois
  • Rep. Lloyd Smucker from Pennsylvania


It is the second time Bond has met with senior US visitors in recent months. Last October, the business welcomed Jason Hammontree, an Economic Advisor at the US Embassy in London, to Cardiff to discuss trading opportunities between Wales and the US.

Transform® is now being used in conjunction with a lateral flow test that is being manufactured in high volume by a major US diagnostics firm.

The test has been granted emergency use authorisation (EUA) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
