The main objective of this research is to design and develop a smartphone-based urinalysis device known as uTest that has the ability for patients themselves to conduct rapid quantitative diagnosis of human serum albumin (HSA) in urine using the aggregation-induced emission (AIE) nanomaterial bioprobes anytime, anywhere and with any mobile device. Work reported in this study has confirmed the feasibility of such a solution, which can achieve accurate urinalysis for HSA concentrations in the range of 0-100 mg/dL.
