Accurate, Rapid, Robust and Economical diagnostic technoliogieS for Tuberculosis

Project description

Rapid and reliable point-of-care diagnostics of tuberculosis

The goal of the EU-funded ARREST-TB project is to develop affordable and reliable point-of-care tuberculosis (TB) diagnostics coupled with telemetry for notification, aiming at the same time to eliminate the need for centralised facilities. The core technology will include rapid (within 30 min) screening of TB infection using portable optical devices and chemical molecular probes for accurate detection of mycobacteria as well as rapid molecular identification of drug resistance in sputum. It will also include biomarker-based early diagnosis and assessment of the treatment response directly from small blood samples. Finally, the project partners will ensure that the technologies are economically viable in the context of limited resources settings, estimating the running cost at less than 1/10 of the current detection technologies.
