Product “Lanceta Laser” / Cuba – Mexico / 2007-2009.
The “Lanceta Laser” by “bralax“, is an equipment for clinical laboratories, which allows a faded drop of blood, without any contact with the patient, using a finger microperforation made by a laser pulse.
The equipment consists of two parts, at first: the trigger, which houses the laser cavity and the base, which contains controls and electronic components.
(Innovation Process of Design)
The “Lanceta Laser” ensures patient safety and controls the entire process: power, time and place of shooting. The technician selects the power according to the hardness of the patient’s skin (soft, medium or hard).
An LED lights up when the equipment is ready to run the shot and a sensor controls the correct position of the finger without touching it.
It produces a minimal pain thanks to a fine shot with low power it lasts a few milliseconds. It is easy to maintain, has energy autonomy, does not generate waste and can perform more than 10 million shots with the same initial efficiency. A prick costs 0.0002 usd.
The project includes the product development according to the process of design and innovation.
