A lightweight and field-portable device invented at UCLA can conduct albumin testing and transmit data through a smartphone attachment.

Weighing about one-third of a pound, the gadget can determine levels of albumin in the patient's urine and transmit the results in seconds.

John Schieszer reports in today's Medical Minute that the entire test takes only about five minutes.
