Description
OBJECTIVES:
For current space flight missions, NASA has the ability to return blood and urine samples to the ground for testing and evaluation. For long-duration space missions, it will not be possible for ground testing of these flight samples. There is a need to evaluate if Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) medical devices capable of assaying biologic fluids will function correctly in microgravity.
