Biosense's uChek portable diagnostic kit is a smartphone-based mobile lab. It can run tests such as urine analysis and blood sugar tests, and the database and technology for the system is constantly growing. uChek uses a smartphone camera to determine the change in color (and change in concentration) on test strips included in the kit. It connects to the cloud and has its own analytics services.
