Diagnostic Kit [Rapid Diagnostic Kit for Tuberculosis]

OUTLINE:

As many as 1.6 million people die of tuberculosis each year globally, and it is the number one cause of death for HIV positive patients. This product is a tuberculosis diagnosis kit that makes possible diagnosing people, such as HIV positive patients, who have a high possibility of tuberculosis infection. By applying silver amplification techniques used for developing photographs, the existence of tuberculosis bacteria within sparse components in urine is determined, which leads to making early treatment possible. A simple and accurate examination that does not employ a power source or apparatus was realized.
