Constructional Design for Decontamination of Sputum Specimens for Tuberculosis Culture

Dalia Mahmoud Adam Mahmoud, Tarig Mohamed Saad Alnour


This paper provides a proposal model for a medical device that can prepare samples for the purpose of  tuberculosis diagnosis using sputum specimens. Conventional methods contain hazards because of the seriousness of the disease and  persons infection probability in the laboratory as well as the time spended to prepare each sample individually. The proposed model has a robot arm operates in a completely closed environment  to prepare all samples at once, which reduces the total time of the process. All operations controlled by the Programmable Logic Controller (PLC).
