Blood Scanner

Blood scanners are used to detect infection by the biological nanovirus strain of the exsurgent virus. The scanner is simply pressed against the skin of a biomorph (or other living creature) so that microneedles can painlessly extract blood samples from capillaries. These samples are then analyzed and compared to a database of known nanoviral strains. See Exsurgent Virus Detection (Firewal p. 177), for details on handling scans.
