PlaCor Inc. Platelet Function Test

PlaCor came to Wi through one of our hardware partners looking to implement a technology capable of detecting activation of platelets.  The market was in need of a device that could determine the efficacy of statin drugs and low dose aspirin regiments.  PlaCor needed a cartridge incorporating their technology and a hardware receiver mechanism to interface with the consumable.  The entire program was executed within 4 months.
