Last Published:  03/26/21 03:34:00 PM (Central)
Short Title: In-flight Blood Analysis
Responsible HRP Element: Exploration Medical Capability
Collaborating Org(s):
National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI)
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):

1. Develop a prototype of a compact flow cytometer that is capable of 5-part WBC differential
2. Demonstrate the analysis of WBC subtypes (e.g., CD4+ T helper and natural killer cells)
3.Serum/plasma protein biomarker analysis (e.g., for infection, radiation and bone loss monitoring).
4.  Evaluate the prototype by analyzing a blood sample for a 5-part differential of white blood cells in real time.
