Abstract:

The overall aim of this project is to develop a diagnostic field test that can be used to detect traumatic brain injury and late stage shock from a drop of blood taken from a finger stick. For Phase I Option, the broad goal is to integrate the sample processing technology developed in Phase I with the nanoscale optical sensing array NOSA which will ultimately be used to carry out label-free detection of blood-borne markers. The technology should enable a portable system that can be set up in a remote location and enable clinical diagnosis of a variety of conditions. The system will be accompanied with disposable cassettes that are specific to the test.
