In the Field of Medical Devices for Real-Time Blood Testing.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Amzeal -- Pixcell Medical's mission statement is to simplify real-time blood testing for everyone, everywhere. Its vision is to help people around the world rapidly detect and act on the greatest medical risks. "The technology at the center of the HemoScreen's success is based on three major innovations that serve to disrupt an industry that has been stagnant for over 50 years: Viscoelastic focusing (VEF), machine vision and AI, and proprietary lab-on-a-cartridge. In contrast to traditional hydrodynamic cell focusing techniques, VEF is a physical phenomenon that causes cells to perfectly align into a single layer, offering a new way to examine blood and facilitating rapid optical cell analysis. This innovative microfluidics method is key to the miniaturization of high-quality analysis. By leveraging this novel, patented, cell flowing mechanism, the long-standing problem of moisturization has finally been overcome. The advanced machine-vision and AI algorithms classify cells instantly based on their morphology and staining properties, providing higher resolution and clarity than the current laser-based cell counters that are used. The machine vision can identify many sub-types of cells, and provides comprehensive abnormal cell flagging for the early screening and identification of pathogens to help diagnose diseases early.

Additionally, PixCell dedicated over a decade of R&D to the development of their proprietary lab-on-a-cartridge technology. An innovative disposable cartridge pre-loaded with all the necessary reagents houses the HemoScreen's internal "lab," enabling automatic sample preparation and processing.  The simplicity of sample collection and analysis unique to the HemoScreen allows it to be operated by a non-technical operator, saving costs, and making it more accessible to patients.

Together, these technologies enable the HemoScreen to deliver reliable diagnostic results right at the point of care in a significantly shorter amount of time. With just one drop of blood, and within five minutes, HemoScreen delivers accurate readings of 20 standard blood count parameters with the high sensitivity of lab results, saving patients, clinicians and health systems significant time and costs.

HemoScreen's thoughtful design and engineering enables true point-of-care hematological testing. It has implications for many medical scenarios, including, recently, COVID-19 field hospitals. Results are needed quickly to handle the high volume of patients, and are time sensitive due to the contagious nature of the virus. The HemoScreen is also ideally suited for emergency use as the results are quick, and the device can be operated by a minimally trained individual."
