Vitamin A is very important nutrient for functions of various parts of body. Skin integration & mucous membrane integration are dependent on Vitamin A level in Blood. Person having Vitamin A deficiency have difficulty in identifying objects in dim light as well as person takes longer time for adaptation in dim light. Particularly vehicular accidents will be more at night by drivers having vitamin A deficiency. The vision problems are due to defective rhodopsin production in retina. In addition to blindness due to keratomalacia & vision problems person will have more infection of respiratory tract ( cough & cold, Asthma etc) , Gastrointestinal tract ( Diarrhoea , vomiting , mal absorption etc) , Urinary tract infection , genital tract infection, low birth weight , , failure to gain weight , skin infections , increase in infant mortality etc

India is signatory to SDG Vitamin A has got important role in vision according to medical science.
surement of vitamin A level is essential not only in hospitals in few departments like Road transport service and Railway service’s employments to prevent accidents related to vision defect. For preliminary screening purpose, we have developed one instrument which measures vitamin A deficiency at clinical levels in very less amount of time, this will reduce the cost of tests, time and rapid screening will become possible with this instrument, “DARK ADAPTOMETER”
Principle : Development of an instrument for measuring requirement of intensity of light to visualize the object and indirect prediction of detection of Vitamin A deficiency and allied conditions.₹25,000.00₹25,000.00
