KetoAnalsys - Ketostix Image Analyzer



I have created a utility for photographically analyzing Ketostix (urine ketone test strips) to give a more accurate reading. Normally Ketostix only gives a rough idea of the ketone levels based on matching the color of the test strip to reference color bars. This utility analyzes a photograph of the Ketostix and color bars to interpolate the actual value. The utility is somewhat experimental, and getting the right picture can be tricky.
