RBTT is an all-in-one blood test product that combines blood collection, buffer mixture, blood test strip, and final confirmation. It allows healthcare personnel to quickly determine the blood group of a patient in need of an emergency transfusion. Based on the utility of a blood test strip and buffer solution, RBTT visualizes the blood group using color and symbols to provide a simple interface. Extracting blood via hollow microneedles makes the workflow easier, ensuring a painless blood extraction experience for patients.

Knowing a patient's blood type is essential in a variety of medical scenarios. "Rapid Blood Type Test" (RBTT) simplifies and speeds up the blood type test for both general use and emergency situations. RBTT is innovative in that it substitutes needle-blood apprehension with a welcoming patch design in which the microneedles are embedded and the explicit interface is presented at the front. It creates a positive experience of blood type testing for all.
