With the help of a medical device company based in the US - Becton, Dickinson and Co. (BD) - a new malaria detection kit created by Israeli innovators will be brought to India.

Sight Diagnostics has developed a novel computer vision platform for blood analysis, the SightDX Parasight Malaria Detection Platform. Through this agreement, BD will market the Parasight Platform in India, adding to BD’s extensive infectious disease diagnostics portfolio.

The SightDX platform uses combines innovative software algorithms, specialized optics and a quicker sample preparation method. The instrument automatically analyses the sample and provides a diagnostic result within four minutes.

The device also provides information on the species of the infecting malarial parasites and information that may be used by clinicians to aid in determining the severity of the illness.
