Blood Test for Drowsiness

Blood Test for Drowsiness
A blood test for drowsiness could help reduce accidents and diagnose sleep disorders.

Developed by a team from Surrey University, the blood test relies on a library of blood samples taken from a group of volunteers who went without sleep for one night. That data was analyzed by a specialized algorithm, allowing the team to identify specific biomarkers that indicate a sleep-deprived individual.

The team believes the blood test could have applications in companies that employ drivers as well as sleep disorder diagnosis.
