Technology

The ODI technology consists of two main technological platforms:
  • The Microvascular Laboratory™, mLab™, for capturing microvascular data bed side.
  • The Central Laboratory, cLab™, for analysis and assessment of the microvascular system function.

mLab™

mLab - microvascular laboratory

The Microvascular Laboratory™, mLab™, is a system for capturing microvascular data bed side enabling assessment of microcirculatory function.

The system is easy to use and enables clinical or technical personnel to record microvascular data with the following devices:
  1. A digital microscope for recording microvascular hemodynamics.
  2. A spectroscope for recording microvascular local oxygen delivery.
  3. A pulse oximeter for recording global oxygen saturation levels in the blood.
 
The mLab™ software guides the user through the data capturing process and automatically encrypts and transfers data securely to the ODI Medical Central Laboratory, cLab™, for analysis and data extraction.
 
The mLab™ is currently under development.
 

cLab™

The ODI Medical Central Laboratory, cLab™, enables advanced analysis and assessment of microvascular hemodynamics and oxygen delivery. 
 
From the data captured with mLab™, a series of parameters are extracted in cLab™ and the total output represents an optical biomarker for oxygen delivery to cells in the measuring volume: the Oxygen Delivery Index™.  
 
The Oxygen Delivery Index™ is a method for assessing microcirculatory function: the capacity for delivery of oxygen from the circulatory system to the cells of the body. 
 
The Oxygen Deliver Index™ can be used to:
  1. Make a diagnosis of the function of the circulatory system, i.e. circulatory failure, on an individual patient basis.
  2. Provide a prognosis for the specific patient.
  3. Assess the efficacy of treatment in a specific patient by trend analyses of measurements before and after start of treatment.
 
All data analysis is reviewed and approved by trained clinical personnel.
 
The Oxygen Deliver Index™ is communicated to the responsible physician, and can be used for clinical decision-making and patient tailored treatment.
