TOMSK, Jan 14 – RIA Tomsk. Undergraduate of Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) Yulia Sytnik received a grant from Foundation for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises (FASIE) for the development of a unique device for express analysis of blood clotting time; it will allow to monitor clotting during surgical operations, the author of the project told RIA Tomsk.

According to her, currently there is no device in the world which allows physicians to monitor the blood clotting time using a non-contact optical method for analyzing of thrombosis during surgical interventions. Meanwhile, the formation of blood clots is one of the dangerous consequences of surgical operations.

"Existing devices do not allow to monitor the clotting time promptly, since they first need to separate the blood in the centrifuge into plasma and formed elements. Our unit works with whole blood, and, what is most importantly, it allows to do monitoring immediately during the operation", – Sytnik said.

She added that at the TPU Research School of Chemistry & Applied Biomedical Sciences the project team assembled a laboratory installation, and at Siberian State Medical University (SSMU) conducted the necessary tests.

"Under the "UMNIK" program of the Foundation for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises (FASIE), we received 500 thousand for further work. In two years we will create a compact device on the model of the assembled installation. It is expected that its final cost for consumers will be 75-80 thousand rubles", – the graduate explained.

Sytnik clarified that the developed device will diagnose clotting time using coherent light, camera, and real-time software. The whole blood test will be performed non-invasively with the use of optical radiation.
