About

Measurement of iron is important for identifying both low and high iron levels in the body. Measuring a protein in the blood called ferritin is currently the easiest way to determine a patient's iron status. However, the test requires a blood sample that is be sent to the laboratory for measurement, which can cause delays in obtaining the result. The investigators are testing whether a point of care device that measures ferritin levels using a capillary blood sample is accurate compared to current methods of testing. This could allow measurement of ferritin immediately in the clinic with only a drop of blood, and enable treatment decisions based on these results.
