Abstract

Triton Systems will develop a novel approach to field-based disease and biochemical diagnostics through innovative use of extremely low cost bioanalytical devices.The proposed platform will provide a low cost, portable, and reliable diagnostic test for on-site use in austere and resource-limited environments.The devices will be highly durable, rugged, and easy to use without user-induced variation. During this Phase I effort, we will show the utility of these devices to rapidly detect and identify biomarkers for scrub typhus and leptospirosis in blood samples.
