Having launched the UTI digital Test-to-Treat service in the UK in April, we have now expanded a similar offering to Estonia. In Estonia, we operate in a digitally advanced society where we aim to deliver a test kit to the patient enabling them to self-test to a medical standard, issue a prescription if needed and deliver the medication all within the same day. 


Around 50% of women suffer from UTIs globally, with 30% of those experiencing more than one infection in their lifetime. For those that suffer from UTIs the importance of being able to receive a diagnosis and begin treatment quickly and conveniently is the key priority.

The Certific UTI Test to Treat service is now available to women in Estonia, allowing to test themselves in the privacy and comfort of their home. Using colorimetric analysis, computer vision, and AI, we transform the patient's smartphone camera into a clinical-grade medical device. The app walks the patient through a simple test, making it as easy as snapping a photo.

Certific will verify your test result and, if needed, a digital prescription and treatment plan will be uploaded to your health record with within 2 hours of completing your test. 

What are UTI’s?

UTI or Urinary Tract Infection, also referred to as cystitis, is the most common infection of the urinary tract, which includes kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra.  It can affect men, women and children of all ages, however women are more commonly affected. 

Symptoms can often be painful and cause enormous discomfort for patients, who are often forced to wait a long time for assistance and treatment. Rapid diagnosis and early treatment is the best solution to tackle such infections, which may otherwise worsen over time.

A UTI can improve by itself and be aided by simple measures such as increasing fluid intake or the use of cranberry juice. In some cases, these measure alone will not work, and you may need a short course of prescribed antibiotics.

“The solution offered by Certific is ideal for those who have developed the symptoms of acute cystitis and who want to get a comfortable and high-quality solution without leaving home.”

Dr Andres Lasn, Medical Officer at Certific and Family Physician

How does Certific’s UTI Test and Treatment service work?

  1. Patients can purchase a test kit through Certific as soon as they notice symptoms and receive it within 24 hours.
  2. Patients will then complete a short health questionnaire through the Certific app and undertake a guided self-test to receive accurate results and confirm their condition. Our doctors will then provide the patient with advice and a tailored treatment plan, which can include a medical prescription, within 120 minutes after submitting the result.

With our new screening, patients will have the convenience of not needing to book an appointment with a GP or visit a medical centre, empowering patients to take control of their health without compromising on quality of consultation and diagnosis, enabling patients to receive the correct treatment sooner.
