Infectious Disease Screening
Critical Need for Pathogen Surveillance Sequencing
- Zoonotic infections remain a major cause of mortality in sub-Saharan Africa.
- Widespread use of antibiotics and the lack of classical microbiology culture systems has generated some of the most drug-resistant bacterial strains worldwide with tuberculosis just being one example.
- We have partnered with Oxford Nanopore Technology to routinely implement DNA sequencing-based pathogen surveillance.
Our mission is to save the lives of young children and adults by leveraging our intellectual property and know-how to enable precise and rapid diagnosis of inherited blood disorders, infectious diseases and early-stage cancer in sub-Saharan Africa.
