Problem Statement

Currently there is no device that allows field researchers to extract blood samples from free-ranging large cetaceans. Developing a tool where blood can safely be taken from whales in the wild would mark a breakthrough in current technology and allow for subsequent studies to focus on critical physiological indices necessary for maintaining the general health of cetacean populations.
