Bowel Health Testing Kit


Mode Diagnostics


Personal home screening is becoming more and more important to our health and management of both acute and chronic conditions, and our role often extends beyond the look and functionality of a product.

We partnered with Mode Diagnostics to develop a home diagnostic device to detect the presence of blood in the stool – a very sensitive and personal examination where a bad experience may discourage future testing.

In this project, the user experience is improved not only by the quality of the device but through the attractive packaging and easy to follow IFU – all designed to make home testing a less daunting experience.
