While the hemoglobin measuring software currently requires a separate computer to operate, the researchers expect it could be incorporated into an app without too much trouble

A team of scientists has developed software that could make diagnoses of blood disorders much more straightforward, using a smartphone camera to assess levels of hemoglobin. This protein in red blood cells can be used as a marker for conditions like anemia or kidney injuries, and by analyzing it via smartphone, the team hopes to offer a less invasive method that could be put to use in developing areas.
