“Bangladesh has the largest portion of ship recycling worldwide. This industry comes with a high health cost as we found that lung cancer in Bangladesh is the 2nd common cancer among men. In addition, Bangladesh is suffering from a lack of doctors and medical equipment shortage. Many of their instruments are very old and give inconclusive test results of mesothelioma. Therefore, we want to make an impact that leads to regulating the industry and protecting workers, the environment, and the economy by introducing our cutting-edge integrated solution of a portable station, database, and smart needle extract the pleural liquid biopsy with HipMed to analyze the sample by using AI to get a conclusive mesothelioma test result.”
