Robots to take blood samples

Science Innovations

Soon the service of robots may be used in hospitals to draw blood samples of patients. In the manual process, it requires dexterity, a gentle touch and a keen eye of the nurse to find a suitable vein. In some patients veins will not be visible which makes it difficult to extract sample blood.  A team of researchers from Rutgers University has done the first human clinical trial using Smart Tissue Autonomous Robot which is used to autonomously perform complex surgery with minimal assistance. The overall success rate of the robot was 87% for the 31 participants who had their blood drawn. In the case of 25 individuals with easy-to-locate veins, the success rate was even better at 97%.
