Malaria is killing almost half a million people each year. And 60% of them, are children under the age of 5. The Gold Standard diagnostic method for Malaria is microscopic examination of blood samples. This is a time consuming, expensive and error prone procedure. We have developed an optical device, combined with smart algorithms, to automatically detect the malaria parasites in less than five minutes. It is a cheap, fast and automated method to detect a large variety of (parasitic) diseases in both human and animals. We can diagnose diseases like Malaria, Trypanosomiasis, Schistosomiasis and Lymphatic Filariasis.
