An HIV Detector: "CATCH" / A low cost HIV detector

"CATCH" is a low cost, easy to use, self-testing device which detects HIV. This encourages people in developing countries (who are discouraged from travelling for miles to see a doctor) to check themselves for HIV at home.

It is designed to do all the thinking for the user and is operated in 3 easy steps;
1. Sliding the disinfectant sleeve over the finger.
2. Push down on the pipette/needle top
3. Press the button to see the result

This simple device has a tiny production price of approximately £4. The device itself is partly made from recycled plastic bottles. This is to help combat the ever-rising issue of environmental deterioration.
