The design project for Team Eight is focused around developing and implementing improvements to a novel lab prototype of a portable blood diagnostic device developed by Alentic Microscience Inc. The prototype developed utilizes an innovative and relatively cost-efficient approach to imaging blood. This novel approach enables the imaging and analysis of blood within mere minutes at a standard of quality that meets the current gold-standard of blood analysis adopted by hospitals and clinics around the world. As this device is able to greatly reduce the time required for returning blood results to patients at a low cost and at a quality on par with modern techniques, target demographics include developing nations where healthcare infrastructure is not fully developed. Alentic Microscience Inc. is now focusing on developing a new version of the prototype that is intended to be portable and powered by use of a smart phone. Team Eight is focused on the development of the first marketable iteration by addressing problems preventing the lab prototype from being appropriate for global manufacturing and distribution.
