Our vision in LiteBC is Transforming the Complete Blood Count (CBC) into a Simple and Abundant test, akin to blood pressure and body temperature.
We wish to evolve the CBC into a Continuous Measurement, with a rich diagnosis basis. Allow for early detection of disease.
Due to the rapid rise of the COVID-19 virus, it becomes apparent that more intelligent tests should be made. If no advanded screening is perfomed before deciding whether to perform a test on an individual, the nubmer of COVID-19 tests will be dramatically under the demand.
Many recent papers on the COVID-19 virus [e.g. 1 , 2 , 3] are indicating a strong correlation between various blood parameters (white blood cells, Lymphcites concentration, Neturophiles concentration) to a positive infection. Using LiteBC technology it will be possible to predict the probability of infection, and perform COVID-19 test only on individuals with high infection probability
