Portable Screening Test For Tuberculosis

A Key Requirement To Eradicate a Global Pandemic

Epilab's state of the art technology helps health organisation that want to fight tuberculosis by improving the rate of diagnosis in developing countries and reducing the number of new infections and victims.

 

Tuberculosis In Figures

10 Million New Cases Each Year

Each year, 10 million people contract tuberculosis. One-third of these new cases, representing about 3 million individuals, are not detected and remain unknown to health organisations. As a result, patients are not receiving appropriate treatment, thereby allowing for ongoing disease transmission.

4 Million Undetected Cases

​Eighty percents of new yearly cases emerge in developing countries that lack resources to implement successful diagnosis campaigns. Existing tests are not adapted to the needs of those countries.

1.5 Million Victims

Despite being a preventable and curable disease, 1.5 million people die from tuberculosis each year because their diagnosis is “missed,” making it the world’s top infectious disease killer.

The main reason of this underdiagnosis are:

  • Infrastructure (labs) required : most of the population does not have easy access to the few existing infrastructures

  • Medically qualified staff required

  • Testing is expensive.

  • Available tests are unquantifiable and lack sensitivity
