The selling price of this system to optimize demand and net present value of the business plan for this system was determined to be $66,500. The net present value for the seven-year estimated life of this business is $5,300,000. The amount of profit that could be obtained varied from approximately $8,500,000 to $1,600,000 as calculated by the net present value method. The study also revealed that there was a 0% risk of loosing money with the proposed design. Regarding the possibility of using an onsite cryogenic process to meet hospital needs, this project concluded that this was economically unfeasible. Although a process that provides the needed product at the needed flowrate was successfully designed within operating cost requirements, the capital costs of this system inhibited typical hospitals from being able to invest in such a system....
