A low-cost way to quantify thyroid-stimulating hormone

  • If diagnosed early enough, most thyroid disorders – which affect roughly 42 million people in India – can be treated and well managed, avoiding complications such as decreased fertility, depression, a lowered heart rate and high cholesterol levels.

    Testing the level of thyroid-stimulating hormone is often the initial step when screening for any type of thyroid disorder and this project is developing a low-cost tool to do that, using a combination of fabric-based lateral flow immunoassay (LFIA) and a mobile-based image-processing platform. Fabric-based LFIA makes the assay controllable and repeatable. Robust image processing algorithms would result in precise quantification of analyte without the requirement of dedicated hardware.
