DIY funded by Gates GCE Grant for Mosquito Diagnostics

Undergraduate researchers at the University of Texas at Austin are creating diagnostics to test mosquitos for blood-borne pathogens. These diagnostics will combine a simple mosquito-processing device by Paratus Diagnostics with molecular technology to transduce the presence/absence of pathogens into a chemical signal for reading on a common pregnancy test strip.
