Battelle to Make Sepsis Treatment Device for DARPA

BattelleLogoBattelle has won a $7, 057, 206 contract modification from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to develop a portable device that works to treat sepsis.

DARPA intends for the device to remove dirty blood from the body, separate harmful agents and return clean blood to the body, the Defense Department said Wednesday.

The agency’s Dialysis-Like Therapeutics program aims to treat sepsis in a manner similar to dialysis treatment of kidney failure.

More than 1, 500 soldiers suffered from sepsis in 2009, DARPA says.

Battelle will perform work in Columbus, Ohio, San Diego and Lawrence, Mass. through Feb. 12, 2018.
