Low Cost AI assisted Microscopy

Microscopic analysis of biological matter, especially blood and urine, remains one of the most in-emand diagnostic techniques today. However, access to microscopic analysis is hindered by 1) manual sample analysis and 2) the high-cost of the test equipment1. Largely due to these factors, microscopic analysis is almost exclusively performed in major hospitals and offsite clinical laboratories. Our low-cost and automated microscopic system would allow microscopic tests to be performed at the point-of-care and at-home settings. Our device has multiple advantages, including allowing patients to monitor health conditions at home (e.g. for chronic conditions), reducing the frequency of physician visits, enabling physicians to make more rapid and accurate decisions in clinics, and increasing the likelihood of diagnosing a disease early.
