Indian Scientists Designs Pathological Lab That Can Fit Into A Suitcase

Posted on: 13 May 2013

Amit Bhatnagar, an alumnus of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) – Roorkee, has designed a mobile lab that can conduct tests which could lead to early identification of many diseases, says a news report by Press trust of India.

Bhatnagar quit a plush job in Hollywood’s famed Universal Studios and designed this portable biochemistry laboratory, which comes packed in a suitcase and can perform 23 crucial medical tests, including tests for kidney, liver, heart, anaemia, diabetes and arthritis accurately, cost-effectively and timely. “It is a complete, compact lab in a suitcase with power backup,” Bhatnagar said.

The portable lab was launched by science and technology minister S Jaipal Reddy on Saturday, May 11, 2013.

The lab, which costs a maximum of Rs. 3.5 lakh, includes blood analyser, centrifuge, micro pipettes, incubator, laptop with patient data management software and consumables. “The key advantage of the mobile lab is in its design, rugged analyser, portability and cost-effectiveness,” Bhatnagar said.

The portable lab is being used by the Border Roads Organisation at its dispensaries in remote areas of Kargil, Leh and Nagaland, and by the Central Reserve Police Force in the jungles of Chhattisgarh. Read more
