DetectAn

A quick, efficient, and disposable screening diagnostic test device, which utilizes saliva rather than blood to detect iron-deficiency anemia and pre-anemic iron deficiency, yielding its results in about five minutes without the need for a health professional or additional equipment to be used. Physically, this device will be similar to an over-the-counter pregnancy test. Approximately 2 billion people - more than 30% of the world population - suffer from anemia.
