Sanguis Diagnostics introduces the HemoRetractoMeteris, or HeRM, a fast and inexpensive alternative to the currently existing blood coagulation diagnostic devices on the market. The ability to maintain hemostasis is crucial for normal life function, as clotting too much or not enough could have serious implications for a patient’s health. Recent prototype development by these students has recognized the current demand for a low-cost, fast-paced, technologically savvy and informative device for diagnostic blood testing. The device can give the same data as a $30,000 machine in one-fifth of the time. Additionally, the device could be used for providing high-tech medical care to those who do not have access to it, reducing workload and patient overload in hospitals and saving time in emergency situations following mismanagement of medications, much more so than what is currently available in the medical field.
