Essenlix develops self-testing blood count deviceOctober 8, 2019
Essenlix Corporation said the company has developed the world’s smallest and low-cost blood count device – iMOST-CBC (instant mobile self-test for complete blood count).
iMOST is an instant personal, mobile, health self-testing platform that allows an individual to perform health tests easily and quickly with results in 60 seconds that can be sent immediately to a healthcare professional.
iMOST-CBC is comprised of a card about the size of a post-stamp (1 in x 1.3 in x 0.04 in), a reader that’s similar in size to a matchbox (1.5 in by 1.7 in by 0.87 in), a smartphone for the hardware, plus software. iMOST-CBC is about 100 times smaller than the size of today’s smallest CBC device, and is 1,000, and 10,000 times smaller than the desk-top and enterprise CBC instruments, respectively.
