The University of Liverpool had secured funding from the i4i to develop a patented diagnostic platform that can rapidly detect the onset of sepsis. A small sample of blood is centrifuged, and a reagent added to the plasma. Transmission of light through the sample is then measured and interpreted as a pass or fail.
4D Products were tasked with supporting the University’s medical and technical specialists in the development of the micro-fluidic consumable disc and point of care device. Mclennan Servo Supplies developed and supplied the stepper motor and control electronics.
