One serious difficulty for medical personnel working in remote or impoverished regions is how to test for infectious diseases without using complex and expensive equipment. At Springwise, we have seen several approaches to this problem. For example, an insulin kit specially designed for children and home-based clinical tests. Researchers from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and Keio University in Japan have recently come up with a new way. They have developed a reliable way to test for infectious diseases using just a special glowing paper strip, a drop of blood and a digital camera.
