Apple holds the trademark for punchline "There's an app for that" and rightly so there is an app for almost everything one could imagine using technology to help them with. To take things to another level altogether, an Indian startup "Biosense Technologies" has came up with an innovative iPhone app which lets users do Urine medical analysis at home at a fraction of cost and time of lab tests.
A chemically active urinalysis reagent strip or "dipstick" is used to test urine samples, the chemically coated patches on these pads change color when dipped in urine - reacting to the contents present in the sample. The color change, that happens gradually over a specified time period after dipping the strip, helps identify the concentration of different analytes in urine. The uChek system makes use of your smartphone camera and intelligent software to function similar to most commercially available semi-automated urine analyzer machines.
