Head of the team Dr. Ibrahim Sultan told KUNA that the device uses a light beam ­based technology, which targets at blood vessels and determines the blood type of any individual.

He revealed that the device was documented last December in a magazine published at the Dove Medical Press, a Taylor and Francis Group affiliate. The development of the device comes in line with PAAET’s efforts to develop technology within the medical field, affirmed the Kuwaiti academic.
