Innovation Description

A low-cost, thread-based rapid diagnostic tests for Leishmanaisis, and other infectious diseases.
How does your innovation work?
We have discovered that thread can be used to transport liquids in a controlled manner and developed them for making diagnostic tests, akin to the well known pregnancy tests. We will further develop this technology and build low-cost, thread-based rapid diagnostic tests for Leishmanaisis, and other infectious diseases.
