Challenge : Lack of Minimally Invasive In-Flight Laboratory Capabilities with Limited Consumables

Challenge : Lack of Minimally Invasive In-Flight Laboratory Capabilities with Limited Consumables Required for Diagnosing Identified Exploration Medical Conditions

NASA seeks a system to perform in-flight analysis of bodily fluids (urine, blood, saliva) on the lunar surface, providing the data near real-time in lieu of post flight results and that will also reduce launch/return mass/volume. . In addition to microfluidic processing systems, non-invasive monitoring devices may also be considered. Such miniaturized systems are dependent upon space medical standards and requirements that will be determined based on expert opinion, risk assessments and evidence bases.
