Vessel is more than a basic pee strip. Vessel offers a comprehensive array of wellness tests, including vitamins, minerals, and hydration, that are not available on basic pee strips. We also have an app that educates you on what every test means. It also provides personalized recommendations from Doctors and Nutritionists to help you feel and perform at your best and track your progress over time. Lastly, our app uses a sophisticated image analysis algorithm and machine learning to analyze your results with accuracy, similar to a traditional lab (>10% Standard Deviation). When you use basic pee strips, you have to guess the level based on a color chart. As you can imagine, guessing isn't accurate. It's been a few years in the making, and we hope you'll give Vessel a shot. We think you'll love it!
