Paper based spectrophotometric detection of blood hemoglobin concentration
AuthorYan, Jasper S.; Bond, Meaghan McNeill; Wright, John Neil; Elguea, Carlos; Richards-Kortum, Rebecca R.
The present disclosure relates to the use of a paper medium to measure blood hemoglobin concentration. In certain embodiments, spectrophotometric techniques are used to measure light transmission at specified wavelengths through a paper medium containing a blood sample. The light transmission information is then used in the calculation of blood hemoglobin concentration. In certain embodiments, the paper medium may be chemically treated to lyse the blood sample prior to measurement of the light transmission information.
