Get tested and receive results in under 15 minutes

A new phone adaptor by Luminostics offers a rapid and affordable method of screening for Chlamydia. Able to test saliva, blood or urine samples by using the smartphone’s flash camera to measure the amount of light emitted in a fresh batch’s particles, a product roadmap hopes to democratize STD testing by 2018 in the US and Europe before proceeding to veterinary and food-safety testing soon after.

The product is packaged in two parts: a smartphone attachment and a disposable cartridge for storing samples, and uses a paired app to arrive at positive or negative conclusions. After filling the test cartridge, users only need to wait 15 minutes before scanning.
