Portable iEAT Allergen Detector

Portable iEAT Allergen Detector
The iEAT portable allergen detector could help save lives by detecting allergens in foods.

Developed by a team from Harvard Medical School the iEAT system (integrated exogenous antigen testing) is both portable and affordable, costing only about $40 to build. The system includes a handheld device to collect the food allergens and an electronic analyzer that can be carried on a keychain. The results of the test are sent wirelessly to a smartphone app in less than ten minutes.

In tests, the iEAT system was able to detect allergens from wheat, peanuts, hazelnuts, milk and egg whites, even at lower levels than the gold standard laboratory assay.
