Nimble is developing an ingestible capsule to diagnose gastrointestinal disorders (GI). The capsule passes through the GI collecting a sample from the small intestine autonomously. Nimble’s capsule can provide direct gut sampling without the need for endoscopy which is expensive and time consuming. It also reduces the need for fecal sampling or breath testing, which is often inaccurate.
The initial focus is identifying the clinical applications of the capsule technology, including several digestive diseases and systemic diseases.
