Researchers explore whether robots can become useful sacred objects in a religious context
Researchers have developed an end-to-end blood testing device that integrates robotic phlebotomy with downstream sample processing. This platform device performs blood draws and provides diagnostic results in a fully automated fashion and has the potential to expedite hospital work-flow, allowing practitioners to devote more time to treating patients.
