VIVAKIT -

OUR NOVEL MALARIA DIAGNOSTIC TOOLKIT

VivaKit consists of two parts:

Resuable: a device with a microfluidic cuvette

Consumable: a lancet, reagents, buffers and a filter paper

VivaKit is developed based on a patented amplification of a pan-malarial biomarker. The chemical reaction leverages the catalytic properties of the biomarker to trigger a dual amplification resulting in turbidity which can be optically monitored.

The diagnostic protocol is simple and straightforward:
