  • Computer Aided System for Human Blood Cell Identification, Classification and Counting

    Evaluation of Blood Smear is one of the most basic laboratory procedures in Hematology as deviations of blood cell count from their reference values can be indicators of various disease conditions. Digital Image Processing can help the technologists in the analysis and classification of blood cells and diagnosis of certain health conditions based on the CBC values and their morphology. This project aims at generating software that can identify, classify and count various blood cells from the peripheral blood smear samples. Locating, identifying and counting of Blood cells manually can be tedious, time consuming and inaccurate. On the other hand, Automatic Hematology Analyzers that work on Flow cytometry principle for classification are expensive and can perform only quantitative analysis. Thus taking into consideration, the wide scope of Image processing in the field of medicine, this proposed work aims to generate a preliminary framework of Automatic Analysis of Human Blood smear for identification, classification and counting of blood cells by using various Image processing.

  • Blood Cells Counting using Python OpenCV

    Blood cells both white and red are important part of the immune system. These cells help fight infections by attacking bacteria, viruses, and germs that invade the body. White blood cells originate in the bone marrow but circulate throughout the bloodstream, while red blood cell helps transport oxygen to our body. Accurate counting of those may require laboratory testing procedure that is not usual to everyone. Generating codes that will help counting of blood cells that produce accurate response via images gives a relief on this problem. In this study, the images were processed and a blob detection algorithm was used to detect and differentiate RBCs from WBCs. A cell counting method was also used to provide an actual count of the RBCs and WBCs detected. The automation comes with a graphical user interface backed-up with a working database system to keep the records of the users (e.g. patients, respondents). The performance of the system was statistically described as accurate compared to the manual method of counting. Results show an accuracy of 100% for platelet, 96.32% for RBCs and 98.5% for WBCs. Hence, the proposed system can benchmark with the manual methods of detection and counting of platelets, RBCs and WBCs in blood samples.

  • Blood-Separating Device Without Energy Source for Implantable Medical Devices

    Coagulation of blood inside the implanted medical device is quite a critical problem to limit the lifetime. In this paper, we propose a microfluidic blood separating device using curved and branched channels. It utilizes centrifugal force on curved flow and separates blood flow into blood cell rich and blood cell poor ones at the bifurcation. Though it cannot separate the plasma from blood cells completely, the blood with small concentrations of blood cells will have low coagulatibity and extend the lifetime of the implant medical device. The device does not require any external pumps or valves, i.e., the system does not need any power sources but the blood pressure. We conducted experiments with a titanium foil which contacted to human whole blood with different hematocrit values for 7 days. The device was experimentally characterized with respect to the channel design. The former experiments suggested that lower concentration of blood cells helps avoiding blood coagulations, and the latter showed that the separation by our device is mainly affected by the flow rate and channel curvature.

  • A physical model of blood platelets shape and its effect on light scattering

    Quantitative description of blood platelet shape and its dramatic change during activation is necessary for the correct interpretation of light- scattering data, routinely measured in diagnostic laboratories. We propose the model of platelet shape, based on the known information on the cell cytoskeleton. The model geometry is characterized by two parameters: the cell volume and the overcurvature of the internal microtubule bundle, which changes during platelet activation. We describe the procedure for the construction of a cell shape given the volume and overcurvature, and also the way for simulation of light scattering by such objects.

  • Separation of Micro Engineered Particle Using Dielectrophoresis Technique

    The process of manipulation and separation of non-contact particles, which is dielectrophoretic technique, DEP will be described in this paper. This indirect physical contact technique, DEP, focuses on the value of dielectric between its particles and the medium to minimize the problems that occur such as physical and chemical damage to the particles when using the direct physical contact technique. This study was carried out by using polystyrene particles of 1 μm, 4.8 μm and 9.9 μm. The difference of size in this polystyrene particles will determine the change in the pattern the related to the Clausius-Mossotti Factor (CMF) in which the particles will be attracting to the electrodes or repelling from the electrodes. Frequency range selected between 0 to 1.5 MHz The new value of the optimum cross-over frequency will give the more efficient manipulation and separation rates. The force that attracting, PDEP on the y axis and the force that repelling, NDEP on the z axis by the polystyrene particles is observed to see the efficiency and reliability of the process. This separation of polystyrene particles is compared with the separation of the pathogenic bacterial cell particles and blood components in human bodies such as RBC and platelets.

  • The Influence of Mechanical Rubbing on the Dissolution of Blood Clots

    Mechanical rubbing of blood clots is a potential minimally-invasive method for clearing clogged blood vessels. In this work, we investigate the influence of the interaction of the tip of a helical robot with blood clots. This interaction enables the dissolution of the blood clot and the release of the entrapped red blood cells and platelets from its three-dimensional fibrin fiber network. We analyze the pre- and post-conditions of the blood clots following 40 minutes of mechanical rubbing, under the influence of a rotating magnetic field in the frequency range of 20 Hz to 45 Hz. Our measurements show that the weight of the blood clots is decreased by 22.5 ± 11.1% at frequency of 25 Hz. We also validate the influence of mechanical rubbing using cell count and spectrophotometric analysis on phosphate buffered saline samples past the robot and the clot. The maximum cell count is measured as 654 ± 108 × 104cells/ml and 54 ± 12 × 104cells/ml, whereas the absorbance is measured as 4.35 × 10-6mol and 1.05 × 10-6mol under the influence of mechanical rubbing and without mechanical rubbing, respectively.

  • Effect of Ambient Conditions on the Resistance of Metal Oxides as a Novel Material for Outer Corona Protection Systems

    Antimony doped tin oxide, a known gas sensing material, is investigated as a possible substitute for carbon black as filler for outer corona protection systems. Therefore it is necessary to prove the stability of electrical resistance and reversibility during exposure to discharge products like UV- radiation, ozone and NO2. Furthermore, the location of air-cooled generators can vary and with it the surrounding atmosphere, for example humidity. Samples of particle filled resin films are prepared and the resistance is measured while exposed to different diluted gases (varying O2, H2, humidity and NO2in the gas atmosphere at 100 °C). The resistance changes with varying O2(%-range) and NO2(ppm-range) concentrations. These effects are enhanced by UV-radiation (365 nm). All measured resistance changes are reversible but there is a long relaxation time. Besides, both the matrix material and the particle geometry of the Sb-doped SnO2were changed. It was found that the resistance stability depends on the combination of matrix material and particle geometry. We found a link between resistance change and surface roughness, whereby a smoother surface seems to be more stable. The influence of ozone on the film resistance was also measured: Small amounts of ozone (<; 1 ppm) do not change the resistance of a compound film during ten days at room temperature. Hence, it is concluded that antimony-doped-SnO2-compound-films are stable against different gas species and UV-light. However, it is important to choose a proper particle-resin combination for a smooth surface resulting in improved resistance stability.

  • Flow-Induced Accumulations of Von Willebrand Factor Inside Oxygenators During Extracorporeal Life Support Therapy

    BACKGROUND: Shear-induced conformational changes of von Willebrand factor (vWF) may be responsible for coagulation disorder and clot formation inside membrane oxygenators (MOs) during extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) therapy. OBJECTIVE: The aim was to identify vWF structures inside clinically used MOs and employ computational fluid dynamics to verify the corresponding flow conditions. METHODS: Samples from gas exchange membranes (GEM) from MOs were analysed for accumulations of vWF and P-selectin-positive platelets using immunofluorescence techniques. Streamlines and shear rates of the flow around GEMs were computed using a laminar steady Reynolds-Averaged-Navier-Stokes approach. RESULTS: Most samples were colonized with equally distributed leukocytes, integrated in thin cobweb-like vWF-structures. Only 25 % of the samples showed extended accumulations of vWF. Computed streamlines showed considerable cross flow between interconnected neighbouring channels. Stagnation points were non-symmetric and contact faces were washed around closely. The occurring maximum shear rates ranged from 2,500 to 3,000 1/s. CONCLUSIONS: If pronounced vWF structures are present, shape and extent match the flow computations well. Computed shear rates bear a critical degree of uncertainty due to the improper viscosity model. If flow conditions inside the MO were sufficient to affect vWF, a more consistent distribution of vWF across the samples should be present.
