XoutTB gets colors

XoutTB is a one of the projects underway at the Little Devices That Could Lab at MIT (ok, it's called something else). We have covered the technology in the past when reviewing therapy compliance for both infectious disease and chronic conditions. Technology Review was nice enough to cover the technology again. The story in the March issue also sports a new shot of the latest iteration of the actual diagnostic.

One of new things is a suggestion by Rachel Glennester: colors. Dr. Glennester is the Executive Director fo the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab at MIT. Since there is a specific sequence of diagnostics that the patient has to report, the addition of colors adds another way to randomize the sample and provides some variety to the user.
