Researchers have developed a smartphone device that measures the cortisol concentration in saliva in order to define your stress levels. The new test is done in under 10 minutes and there is no need to send a salvina sample on a lab. The cost for each measurement is less than 5$ and the smartphone uses its camera and flash to take a picture of the saliva-coated strip and an algorithm converts the image’s pixel density to a cortisol value.
We have developed a method for measuring cortisol in saliva using a smartphone and a disposable test strip. This innovation enables anyone with a smartphone to measure their salivary cortisol level quickly, accurately, and affordably,
