    • By Robert Gibson,QuantuMDx, based at the city’s International Centre for Life, has developed a prototype for the one-of-a-kind technology that can provide an accurate diagnosis for infectious diseases within 15 minutes

world-leading Newcastle biotech firm is to launch a crowdfunding campaign to support the development of a ‘handheld laboratory’ that could save millions of lives throughout the world.

QuantuMDx, based at the city’s International Centre for Life, has developed a prototype for the one-of-a-kind technology that can provide an accurate diagnosis for infectious diseases within 15 minutes through a innovative piece of kit not much larger than an iPad.

It is now looking for contributions to further expand clinical trials for the device’s application in the eradication of malaria, which currently kills a child every minute.

If all goes to plan, the Q-POC will be set for commercialisation within a year, and will eventually be rolled out to the UK, Europe, Asia and the USA, first to healthcare professionals, then potentially to the general public.
