Q-POC™: The Handheld Laboratory


The Future of malaria diagnosis

Our FP7 European Union funded NanoMal Consortium is developing a handheld laboratory that will deliver complex malaria diagnostics in minutes for a few dollars in any setting across the globe.

Making malaria elimination possible

Our handheld laboratory will provide frontline healthworkers with the definitive tool to diagnose,
manage and monitor malaria and drug resistance.

  • Results in 10-15 minutes
  • Malaria diagnosis & drug resistance testing
  • Directs right first time prescribing
  • Handheld, user friendly, low cost
  • Mobile data connection

The Nanomal Consortium partners are: 
St George's University London | QuantuMDx Group | The Karolinska Insititute | Tubingen University.

QuantuMDx awarded £1m grant to develop rapid multi-drug resistant TB test for their smartphone-like device

The Nanomal Project British biotech QuantuMDx has been awarded a UK government's Technology Strategy Board (TSB) grant to develop Q-TB™, a rapid and cheap test that will analyse sputum samples at the patient's side and diagnose multi-drug resistant TB (MDR-TB) within 15 minutes enabling immediate personalised prescription of the most effective TB drug treatment. TB causes 2m deaths every year despite most cases being curable. The disposable Q-TB™ cartridge will be used on Q-POC™, QuantuMDx's universal handheld diagnostic device and provide a technology leap for both developing nations which lack healthcare infrastructure and the overburdened healthcare systems of developed nations which are seeing an re-emergence of MDR-TB, particularly within inner cities.
