I would like to ask the question regarding recent BBC report.
there are the increasing numbers of reports on malaria devices,
first was lab from the US, Prof Armani lab that claimed it detect malaria from blood sample without using of antibodies and tags, however later was actually proven that they didn't actually test it on the real sample, rather it was chemically synthesised analogue of precursor hemolysin.
Secondly Ugandan inventor claim
'Why can't we find a new way of using the skills we have found in computer science, of diagnosing a disease without having to prick somebody?" Mr Sekitto said.
which means that question asked about him in 2014 and the answer provided by is not correct,
the papers cited relates to direct measurement by exposing to blood.
