Constructional Design for Decontamination of Sputum Specimens for Tuberculosis Culture
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).
