University of Washington researchers have developed a smartphone app that accurately measures jaundice in adults using a selfie and an accessory. BiliScreen is a non-invasive alternative to to blood draws for measuring bilirubin levels in the blood stream. Excess bilirubin can be an indicator of a variety of health conditions – including pancreatic cancer, a disease that often goes undetected until it is in an advanced stage, when jaundice is visible to the naked eye. BiliScreen can be used anytime, anywhere in conjunction with either a 3D-printed box or color-calibrated glasses to account for different lighting conditions.

As i see, they tested app on iphone se and all collected data saved locally to the phone, so probably, the only what u need for home test is – download app, reduce the effects of external lighting and print a glasses with colored squares for calibration. Sounds great ! I hope they will public their app. Of course it`s just an app, btw it can be very helpful. Thx guys.

Remember the iPhone isn't the only smartphone. Don't forget about Android

Is there a website for this and how can you obtain the glasses?
