As India is facing a huge dual disease burden — lifestyle diseases, as well as the traditional communicable diseases (majorly affecting the rural areas) — the need of portable diagnostic devices; for regular monitoring in the case of lifestyle diseases and mass screening in the case of communicable diseases, is souring.

A recent report by a Professor at IIT Delhi has unveiled a portable diagnostic device that can read dozens of diagnostic test strips with a 99.12 per cent correlation as compared to lab grade scanners.  

 

Currently, the existing diagnostic device technology in India, such as a glucometer, either allows a single test on one portable device or several complicated steps in the lab before testing.

The tested diagnostic device is developed by a Bangalore based medical diagnostic firm — Inito. The company says that this discovery will now allow access to medical diagnostic labs right in people’s home.

The report highlights that this affordable device uses a patent-pending imaging technology dubbed as ‘flat lens’ that allows a single portable device paired with a smartphone to conduct dozens of diagnostic tests with the same device.

The device comes with a price tag of Rs 3,195 and is available on Inito’s website and Amazon. It will soon be available in pharmacies.
