About this entry

SpotSense is a team working extensively with community and public health settings to develop diagnostic solutions for infectious diseases. We are currently working on developing a rapid and low cost non-invasive diagnostic for neonatal sepsis which can be used by anyone and anywhere. The product has been developed in collaboration with multiple hospitals and provides a scoring algorithm to not just diagnose neonatal sepsis but to also monitor them. The said score can be used by medical practitioners to guide antimicrobial therapy.

Our device is a non-invasive diagnostic test using salivary markers of infection as the basis for diagnostics. The test module is available for less than 3 USD per test and serial tests can be performed for monitoring the progression of disease and antibiotic effectiveness.
