Smartphone Aided Home Urine Test

A home urine test able to accurately screen for diseases could offer an affordable way for people to monitor their health at home. A device that separates the urine sample automatically into ten identically sized amounts, which are then deposited on the dipstick’s ten pads. Each pad contains biomarkers that will change colour in the presence of a specific disease. A smartphone loaded with the companion app is then placed on top of the box, where it will interpret the colours and ensure an accurate reading.
