BluBox provides laboratory-grade diagnostics for neglected tropical diseases in a matter of minutes.
390 million - that is the number of people affected by dengue each year. In developing countries, clinicians seldom have access to expensive laboratory tests to diagnose dengue. In light of this, our goal was to design a next-generation medical device providing patients with laboratory-grade results in a matter of minutes. BluBox can be carried in a camera case and is extremely easy to use. Medical staff can learn to operate it in a matter of minutes. BluBox and its consumables (ViroTracks) can be expanded to diagnose Zika, chikungunya, yellow fever, West Nile fever and other neglected tropical diseases.
