This patent portfolio broadly discloses a mobile device, such as a smartphone, that can analyze an image of an analyte test strip positioned near its camera. Analyte levels (e.g., cholesterol, glucose, and lactate levels) are crucial parameters for understanding a person’s health conditions. Analytes react with specific reagents on a test strip, generally producing a colored result that can be analyzed using software on a smartphone.

This patent portfolio also discloses a disposable body fluid testing unit which is complementary to the mobile analyte testing technology. With its optimal design, the testing unit contains all the typical components required for body fluid testing: E.g., a lancet pierces a person’s skin, allowing a blood sample to be obtained and then separated into a plasma component, which then reacts with a reagent on a test strip. The testing unit can be attached to a mobile device for analysis.
