  • Publication number: 20230191393
    Abstract: A bilirubin assay system comprises a test card with a bilirubin test strip upon which a blood sample has been deposited, the bilirubin test strip comprising plasma from the blood sample. The bilirubin assay system further includes a mobile device with a camera, configured to capture an image of the test card that comprises the plasma on the bilirubin test strip and the set of calibration images. The system determines first and second calibration images, the first and the second calibration images having saturation values closest to a saturation value of the plasma on the bilirubin test strip. The system further determines a bilirubin level of the plasma on the bilirubin test strip based at least in part on interpolating a first color distance between the first calibration image and the plasma and a second color distance between the second calibration image and the plasma.
