  • Publication number: 20210374959
    Abstract: A method to assess a subject diagnosis is provided. The method includes receiving an image from an image-capturing device, the image comprising an area of interest in a test cartridge, and finding a border of the area of interest of the test cartridge and applying a geometrical transformation on an area delimited by the border of the test cartridge to bring the image of the area of interest in the test cartridge to a selected size and a selected shape. The method also includes identifying a target region within the area of interest of the test cartridge, evaluating a quality of the image based on a characteristic feature of the target region, and providing commands to adjust an optical coupling in the image-capturing device when the quality of the image is lower than a selected threshold.

  • Publication number: 20210373008
    Abstract: A circuit in an image-capturing device is provided. The circuit includes a light source controller configured to provide a signal to a light source when a cartridge mount has received, inside a dark chamber, a test cartridge. The circuit also includes a sensor array controller configured to activate at least one pixel in a sensor array when the light source is activated, and to receive a signal from the at least one pixel, the signal indicative of an optical intensity of a light emitted from the test cartridge. The circuit also includes a processor, configured to form a transmittable file with the signal from the at least one pixel, and a radio-frequency antenna configured to transmit the transmittable file to an external processor.
