Affordable, Portable, Easy to Use Rapid and Accurate Screening Test for Pulmonary Tuberculosis

The objective of the project is to develop a novel aptamer based electrochemical sensor for the rapid detection of pulmonary Tuberculosis. The proposed test will overcome the problems (high cost, poor sensitivity, high turnaround time, dependence on sophisticated and expensive instrument) associated with the current diagnostics modalities. The proposed test has high potential to be used as a point-of-care (POC) diagnostics test for pulmonary TB and will guide the clinician to take an appropriate action for tuberculosis management.
