Portable blood analyzer
Project Description

Blood analyzers are devices which estimate the amount of total white blood cells(WBC) and its differentials, red blood cells(RBC), platelet, haemoglobin concentration(HGB).etc in a blood sample using computer-program-aided algorithm.
Traditional methods for hematology analysis have long been cost and time-consuming due to the sophisticated procedures and qualifications from a well registered medical organizations.
A portable blood analyzer is now proposed to be easy-to-use that does not require a medical staff to perform blood test and will serves as a high-efficient blood analyzer that can be implemented in a Point Of Care (POC) setting, easily accessible to client. This devise can also provide Peace of Mind (POM) to patients and an early stage diagnosis.
