Hemolytics help to diagnose Malaria – Malaria Elimination is driven by the urgent need to eradicate the life-threatening disease caused by Plasmodium parasites transmitted through mosquito bites. Effective diagnostics are crucial, enabling the detection and treatment of asymptomatic carriers and facilitating mass screenings in endemic areas. Their patented assay meets key criteria such as sensitivity, affordability, robustness, and portability, offering a vital tool for global malaria eradication efforts. Jonas Pollard, Co-inventor and Project Leader, participated in the program 2019.
