Cue home health analytical device launches for 2015 shipment

updated 10:32 am EDT, Tue May 13, 2014

Device tests for free testosterone, influenza, fertility, more

A new health monitoring system called Cue has launched, that allows users to take bodily fluid samples and check five parameters from the home. Once analyzed, Cue sends the data through Bluetooth 4.0 to a Cue application loaded on a smartphone, allowing users to record how activity and environmental exposure affect the human body.

Single-use modules available at launch will be blood tests for fertility, inflammation, and vitamin D. Saliva is tested for free testosterone. A fifth module detects influenza from a nasal swab. The Cue developers are working on additional modules, with technically any body fluid able to be analyzed by the unit and the test cartridges.

The manufacturers of the Cue say that they "believe our product will fundamentally change the way we interact with the healthcare system by allowing on-demand information that [consumers] want. With powerful information, we can be proactive about our health, rather than just reactive."

Preorders for the device and five testing modules has launched at $149 for the first 1,000 purchasers. The price will increase to $199 thereafter. The first units will ship in 2015, and will be subject to federal regulation before sales can be authorized.

    This opens the potential to self-diagnosis and essentially practicing medicine without a license. Even (wise) medical professionals don't self-diagnose (or should not) and self-prescribe therapy. But now we'll have a whole bunch of completely ignorant people diagnosing their own problems without a clue about true medical knowledge and diagnosis. Lay people think that they can gather the breadth of understanding medical practice from "researching the internet". It just ain't so.
