Zinc test unused and used

At top, an unused test, which starts as a dry powder that can be transported at any temperature without special conditions and carried in an aid worker's pocket. At bottom, a test shows zinc levels by changing colors. It can be read directly in the field. This demo for the image was not performed with blood. Credit: Georgia Tech / Allison Carter
