Project: Functional hematology diagnostic system, assessing Sickle Cell Disease severity and treatment effect

Acronym SCOOP (Reference Number: 12057)
Duration 01/04/2018
Project Topic The consortium will develop an instrument and method (system) that rapidly determines an individuals status (degree) of Sickle Cell Disease. It will mimic these conditions and measure the rigidifying of the Red Blood Cells. From an individuals sickling behaviour, personalized treatment plans can be developed to enhance the quality of life and reduce costs of treatment. In relation to an oxygen gradient, the instrument will measure sickling as a reduction in deformability of the red blood cells.
