    Diagnostic Solution, Powered by Microfluidic Chip, Leads to Inexpensive Hemoglobin Measurements

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    A collaboration between SigTuple Technologies and the Indian Institute of Science demonstrated an AI-powered, imaging-based tool for the estimation of hemoglobin levels. The setup combines a microfluidic chip and an AI-enabled microscope designed for deriving the total, as well as differential counts, of blood cells.

    Existing hematology analyzers and many medical devices for multiparameter assessment often have dedicated subcompartments with separate optical detection systems. This design tends to require greater sample volumes and can drive up the cost of the equipment as a whole. The new method instead uses a microfluidic chip, which, including the reagent, costs less than $0.14, according to the research paper, as well as a…
