Open Mind: Smart parasite detector
PhD researcher Temitope Agbana and Professor Gleb Vdovine from the 3ME faculty have developed a novel technique, which utilizes optical analysis of patient blood samples using automated smart algorithms integrated into a potentially low-cost multispectral optical imaging platform. With this technique, they aim at the development of a portable, field compatible, affordable smart optical diagnostic instrument for early detection of African Animal Trypanosomiasis and other Hemoparasitic infection in animals. A smart parasite detector for animals: automated, rapid reliable diagnosis which requires minimal human intervention.
