Developed by researchers at the Bioresource Processing Institute of Australia (BioPRIA), located within the Department of Chemical Engineering at Monash University — in conjunction with blood diagnostics manufacturer Haemokinesis Pty. Ltd. — the technology is the first of its kind and could bring pretransfusion testing out of the pathology lab and into point of care.

    Blood transfusion is a critical treatment for a variety of hematological conditions including cancer, bleeding trauma, childbirth, and major surgery. The new laser-aided system can better prevent fatal…
