Scots firm develops potentially lifesaving technology to detect internal bleeding

Posted on

Extract from the Daily Herald. 14th November 2016.

A Scots firm has developed a potentially lifesaving technology which allows doctors to quickly detect when a patient is bleeding internally.

The handheld technology, called CoaguScan, is still in its early prototype stage and has yet to be tested directly on patients.

But the device, developed by the Highland Biosciences firm in Ross-shire, could soon be trialled by specialist trauma surgeons at London's St Mary's Hospital.

The technology will help determine whether a patient is suffering from internal bleeding and if they require a blood transfusion
