TECHKON GmbH, a global leader in color measurement and spectrophotometric solutions, has invented a simple-to-use and effective device and method to analyze body fluids and determine medical parameters and diagnoses instantly.
Depending on the type of medical parameter to be analyzed, the user puts a drop of saliva, blood, or any other body fluid on a card that contains a bio-/ chemical reaction substance and separation mechanism.
The medical rapid test result is displayed on the card or its backside as a change in color or geometric pattern and put into context with a numerical or graphical description. It can be analyzed visually and by using the camera and processing unit of a digital mobile device such as a smartphone.
In the case of a blood sample, the card can contain a perforating-/ needle- or cutting mechanism to extract blood, for example from the fingertip. The card can additionally have a temperature, a personal identity, memory, and/or data processing and transmission module and it can be part of a sterile packaging/disposal unit.
The method can be used for single- or multiple applications and also for consecutive tests for trend evaluation.
