San Diego-based private equity firm HCAP Partners has invested in Confirm BioSciences, a local, woman-owned company that provides diagnostic testing and wellness solutions. Founded in 2008, Confirm Biosciences handles all steps of drug and wellness kit testing, from sourcing and selling products to providing customer support and vendor feedback.

HCAP Partners Managing Partner Tim Bubnack and Senior Associate Bhairvee Shavdia led the investment. The companies did not disclose terms of the deal.
