ACR Digital Urinalysis
The ACR Digital Urinalysis app enables you to test the concentrations of albumin (a protein in the blood) and creatinine (a waste product) in a sample of your pee.
It also measures the ratio of albumin to creatinine (ACR). ACR is a way of checking if the kidneys are working properly, and is often used to monitor a number of medical conditions, including diabetes.
Who is it suitable for?
People who need to check their albumin and creatinine concentrations and ACR.
If you've been diagnosed with diabetes, your ACR should be checked. If your ACR is significantly raised, it should also be measured regularly.
How does it work?
ACR Digital Urinalysis is a home-based test that allows you to measure your albumin and creatinine concentrations in a sample of pee, and your albumin-to-creatinine ratio (ACR).
To do the test, you'll need the testing kit that's been designed to use with the app. You'll also need to pre-register – your healthcare provider can send you a unique link, which you can use to register.
The app guides you step-by-step through the testing process. You put a dipstick into your pee sample and take a photo of it using the camera on your smartphone. Computer vision algorithms are used to analyse the sample and give an accurate reading.
After the analysis, the results are automatically sent to your patient electronic record so they can be reviewed by your doctor.
