Point of Care Diagnostics for Iron Deficiency

Iron WoMan is an iron deficiency point of care diagnostic test kit developed at CSIRO. Unlike traditional method that requires blood samples and a pathology laboratory, it detects ferritin in saliva. The detection limit is 30ng/mL. The test is a low-cost and low hassle at-home testing solution that can be integrated with an already existing telehealth platform.
The test may be used by children (e.g., needles are something children are afraid of), pregnant women, iron deficient women, men suffering from hemochromatosis, etc. We have performed several tests on a small cohort of people.
We would like to extend these tests on a larger cohort and look forward to collaborating with researchers that have interest in the same field and have access to human blood and saliva samples.
