Rainbow Seed Fund, an early-stage venture capital fund focused on promising technologies developed at the UK’s largest publicly-funded research facilities and campuses, today announces its investment into AgPlus Diagnostics, a technology platform developed by scientists at the UK’s National Physical Laboratory (NPL).

The AgPlus platform is based on research conducted at Rainbow partner NPL, the UK’s National Measurement Institute, a world-leading centre in developing and applying the most accurate measurement standards available.

Dr Andrew Muir, Investment Director for the Rainbow Seed Fund, said ” Fast, accurate and affordable measurement is critical to getting it right in the point-of-care market, so AgPlus’ National Physical Laboratory origins are the perfect pedigree. Testament to this are the company’s successful feasibility projects in a wide range of applications and the ongoing commercial engagement.”
