The article highlights how "a hi-tech pill being developed by a team of Oxford scientists could revolutionise the way doctors test for some diseases".
Further, "with pills expected to cost £2 each, compared to £800 for an endoscopy session, it could herald a breakthrough for the cash-strapped NHS."
BioMe was a former finalist at Venturefest's funding event for investor-ready entrepreneurs, Pitchfest, and has also been shortlisted for The Oxford Trust Enterprise Awards 2016.
