Applications

This technology utilizes scatter illumination techniques to distinguish between red blood cells and white blood cells without the need to lyse the cells. This would allow researchers and clinicians to more accurately analyze and count white blood cells, improving diagnostic insight into a patient’s immune system. It would be especially helpful for patients who have health conditions that make their red blood cells resistant to lysing, such as liver disease, sickle cell anemia, those undergoing chemotherapy, and newborns.

This technology may also extend to the analysis of other circulating cells including tumor cells, epithelial cells, and cancer stem cells.
