Hello all,

I just joined the group and I happy to be part of this group.

My name is Rouzbeh Shirvani. I work as Engineer in a biotechnology company called Athelas. We are working on building a device that can reliably count platelets in less than 5 minutes with one blood drop via finger prick and give back the counts immediately. We are at the final stages of this process and submitting our application for the FDA for clearance. Right now our device returns reliable results for people with platelet counts in the range of 150,000 to 450,000 per microliter. However we have not tested the device on people with lower counts like less than 100,000 per microliter. I was wondering if anyone here knows someone specially in northern California with platelet counts lower than 100,000 per microliter that can donate their blood to us. This can be a huge help in order to finalize the validity of our device's reported platelet count.
