Abstract:

Infoscitex and Columbia University propose to develop an automated blood component separation system that can quickly and automatically separate blood into three components for the US Army to use under field conditions. In this Phase I program, the team will prove the feasibility of separating whole blood into RBC, platelet rich plasma and acellular plasma using a high volume microfluidic technology which was developed by the Artificial Organ Research Laboratory at Columbia University for an artificial kidney. The artificial kidney was developed into a prototype in collaboration with Infoscitex and is currently under license with a medical device company. Given the relatively advanced stage of our artificial kidney research, the proposed STTR mechanism is ideal to confirm the transfer of the artificial kidney knowledge to a Blood Components Separation System and to develop it to a useable and field deployable product. In Phase I, the team will develop, build and demonstrate a proof of concept prototype to verify that RBC, platelets and plasma can be separated to the requirements of the US Army with low power requirements.
