Innovation Description

Through miniaturization and parallelization of sample analysis, we propose to reduce the assay time to a few hours and obtain viability information to improve TB diagnosis.
How does your innovation work?
Cell culture is the gold standard for in TB diagnosis. It is inexpensive, provides viability and drug resistance information, but takes 4-6 weeks. We propose to reduce the assay time to a few hours and obtain viability information.
