Leuko is developing the world’s first portable, non-invasive white blood cell monitoring device to screen for severe neutropenia. In May 2020 MeHI awarded $60,000 to Leuko to work with the MIT Center for Clinical and Translational Research (CCTR) to test and validate their solution. The grant enabled Leuko to test their PointCheck™ device with untrained operators in a simulated home environment, helping to prepare them for a clinical trial and FDA certification. We spoke with Ganimete Lamaj, Leuko’s Human Factors Engineer, to learn more.
