Trick AI / Malaria AI diagnostic device

Trick AI
Trick AI

The technology is a unique machine learning and artificial intelligence meant to test, treat, diagnose and prescribe medication for malaria.

Magnetism and light have been combined in a test that can diagnose malaria in under two minutes without the need to take blood.

We use light and magnetism to differentiate between the blood of an infected and a healthy person. Unlike ‘gold standard’ tests that work by detecting molecules produced by the malaria parasite, the Malaria Bot deploys polarized light to detect hemozoin crystals, which are by-products excreted by the parasite.
