Seeking Innovative Technologies for Efficient Capture and Report of Peripheral Blood Films and Bone Marrow Aspirates

Background / Description
In hospitals, a variety of diseases including benign and malignant conditions are being treated and an important part in the treatment process lies in the reading and diagnosis of peripheral blood films and bone marrow aspirates.

Presently, peripheral blood films and bone marrow aspirates are reported by the lab. The current way of reporting blood films and bone marrow aspirates is done under microscopy by a certified laboratory technician or haematologist. However, this reading of the slides requires long man-hours and a significant amount of effort. Moreover, there is no automated system available. The substantial man-hours and effort required is a burden to the healthcare system.

A local public hospital is seeking for technology providers or collaborators to co-develop a more efficient capture and reporting of peripheral blood films and bone marrow aspirates. The ideal timeframe for collaborations should be within 6 to 9 months to have a working prototype.

Technical Specifications
Technology can be related to any of the following:
In the form of a hardware and/or software
Enables high accuracy reading and screening of blood films and bone marrow aspirates (i.e. An accuracy of 95% and above is desired)
Enables reduction in man-hours required and hence high throughput
Enables digital image analysis
Technical expertise in programming and/or machine learning for medical applications is desired.

Preferred Business Model
R&D Collaboration
