A team consisting of Spectral Sciences Inc., Boston University, Boston University Medical School, Radcliffe Consulting and Brighton Consulting will collaborate to develop and validate a novel optical device for the monitoring and evaluation of blood coagulation. In this proposal we describe a novel optical blood coagulation monitoring instrument. The instrument has no moving parts, uses very small blood samples, and will be compact enough to be handheld. Due to its all optical nature and temperature controlled sample stage the instrument will be usable in a wide array of environmental conditions and be suitable for use in medical facilities in military field deployments. In Phase I the concept will be validated using an existing tabletop version at Boston University and the results characterized for the development of a prototype in Phase II.
