A Handheld Medical Diagnostic Device for Harsh Environments

Matthew Coleman | 18-ERD-045

Executive Summary

We will develop a handheld medical diagnostic device that provides sensitive, specific detection of biomarkers for radiation exposure in extreme environments, such as remote medical facilities, battlefields, and outer space. This potentially inexpensive, fast, and easy-to-use device will have broad military and civilian application and supports national missions in chemical and biological countermeasures.
