To help automate a tedious but important part of biology lab work.
What it does
Detects and counts WBC of certain subtypes.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Getting enough data to train an object detection model. Sending the image to the back end.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Being able to get a count of various white blood cell types.
What we learned
What's next for Online White Blood Cell Detection and Counting
With more data this model can perform at the same level of a human manually counting the blood cells or better. This technology can be applied to practically any cell type and can be used to automate the the tedious process of manually identifying/counting cells.
