Anemia, a condition marked by a shortage of healthy red blood cells or hemoglobin, affects over 1.92 billion individuals worldwide. Acknowledging the pressing need for accessible and reliable testing, AnemoCheck Home is an innovative solution for detecting and monitoring anemia for those who need it most.

AnemoCheck Home allows users to obtain accurate hemoglobin level readings by conducting a simple fingerstick blood test. The user performs a finger stick, collects blood into a sample collection tube, and then connects the test cap with a test body. The user then shakes the test to mix the blood. After 2 minutes, the color correlates to a hemoglobin level on a color card. The test is disposable and does not require any additional equipment.
