rHealth One Flight Demonstration (rHealth_Demo)
Research Area:
Biomedical countermeasures
Species Studied
Scientific Name: Homo sapiens Species: Human

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, which can assay biologic fluids, function correctly in microgravity.
