Project description

Personalised monitoring of vitamin B6 levels

The role vitamin B6 plays in the human organism is essential. Deficiency could cause severe health problems. In fact, B6 deficiency in old persons, alcoholics and diabetics is linked to cardiovascular disease, cancer and stroke. Existing monitoring systems of B6 levels are neither fast nor reliable. They also require the involvement of a doctor, as well as a laboratory, increasing costs and diagnosis time. The EU-funded B6VitaStat project proposes an easy-to-use device providing a low-cost and reliable technique that constantly monitors vitamin B6 levels in risk categories of patients. The innovative device offers a personalised diagnosis of B6 levels and is applicable in any kind of environment, including less-developed countries.
