iTest, the Smartest Device to Test for Strep, Flu ...

While conventional diagnostics are typically expensive and trapped within hospitals, the iTest gives consumers a way to test themselves inexpensively, using just a smartphone.

The testing device is a jacket that fits around an iPhone and will interface with disposable tests for strep, flu, rhinovirus, dengue fever and malaria. Users simply swab their cheeks, or insert a drop of blood into the test, press start on the iTest application on their phone, and can get results for these illnesses in just a few minutes.

Descue Medical, a Utah-based startup founded by University of Utah bioengineering students and brothers Andrew and Christopher Pagels, is poised to release the iTest in late 2015. The idea came from time that Andrew and Christopher spent in hospitals, both in the U.S. and abroad. They noticed that wherever they went, there was a similar situation: healthcare was often expensive and difficult to access, and yet the majority of people have smartphones.

Currently Andrew, Christopher and their team is having a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo for the iTest.
