Samsung LABGEO IB10 – Lab in the pocket

Samsung LABGEO IB10 – Lab in the pocket

A product review It’s a long way and even bored to think about diagnostics. Standing in queues, providing blood samples, waiting for hours outside the laboratory and finally identifying the exact cause of illness, is an annoying task. This can be put up with for common health problems. But for emergencies, such as sudden heart stroke where time and accuracy of diagnostics plays a key role, this process will no more sustain. So, Samsung in association with its global collaboration partner, Thermo Fisher Scientific, introduced a digital health diagnostics tool known as Samsung LABGEO IB 10. It has many unique features which made it be named as the portable diagnostics. What do you think about?

Paper diagnostics | A cheap sensor technology for screening of diseases

Paper diagnostics | A cheap sensor technology for screening of diseases

During the last years, there have been a lot of advancements in the area of diagnostics. At first, this process is very long and even boring. After the entrance of digitalization into the field of medicine, there is a reduction of time, and even many traits can be unmasked from it. But the problem is that there are certain areas (rural) which are not digitalized to adopt these diagnostics. There is also an issue of cost perspective. To fulfil these rural circumstances, paper diagnostics comes into the picture.
