Presented by Professor Leonard F. Blackwell, Massey University, New Zealand, Dr. Blackwell is trained in organic chemistry, biochemistry and reproductive physiology. He studied under Professor James Brown at the University of Melbourne in the physiology of ovulation and in the development of the Fertility Meter, a device for monitoring ovarian activity in all its manifestations and one of the only true quantitative point-of-care devices in existence.  For the past 36 years, Len has been involved in research and development of urinary assays as point-of-care diagnostic kits and recently with quantitative immune-chromatographic assays. He has developed prototype tests for five different analytes relating to reproduction and fertility, and a device for overcoming the fluctuations in urine volume which has held back non-invasive point-of-care diagnostic tests.
