By combining the worldwide first battery-operated and mobile fluorescence microscope "CyScope," developed by Partec, with dedicated test kits, for the first time diagnostic services are being offered in high burden countries also to those patients living far from the few capital and large cities in remote areas.
"The prerequisite for any improvement of treatment programmes in the TB and Malaria field is the availability of diagnostic solutions adapted to the specific regional situation and infrastructure, especially in developing countries.
"By having successfully introduced an entirely new class of highly affordable, ultracompact as well as robust and easy-to-use mobile fluorescence microscopes, it is now possible to reach the many infected individuals who previously have stayed almost completely uncovered from any testing for TB and Malaria," said Roland Gohde, Chief Executive Officer of Partec Essential Healthcare.
