Innovation Description

A classic blood capillary tube that is also a diagnostic device at point-of-care
How does your innovation work?
Transforming the classic blood capillary tube into a diagnostic device that integrates whole blood collection with molecular testing. Capillaries are fabricated with ‘hydrogel’, an acrylamide gel that includes reagents for detection of malaria and other infections. The device will provide novel diagnostics at point-of-care.
