Jan van den Boogaart (NL), Oliver Hayden (DE): Rapid Blood Test for Malaria (04:40)

FREE PREVIEW

An automated, computer-based test for malaria infection was invented by haematologist Jan van den Boogaart at Siemens Healthineers in The Hague and biochemist Oliver Hayden at Siemens Healthineers in Erlangen. The system relies on an ingenious principle: instead of detecting the presence of actual malaria pathogens in blood samples – a complicated task, especially when the disease is in its early stages – the invention detects the destructive effects of the plasmodium parasite (which causes malaria).
