Tuberculosis (TB) is the greatest infectious cause of death on the planet. More than one-third of the world's population is infected resulting in 1.7 million deaths annually. Improved diagnostics are desperately needed to combat this growing epidemic, especially in high-burden developing countries.
AutoTB is a privately held company dedicated to improving sputum microscopy, the most widely used diagnostic test for active TB. Our device offers improved diagnostic sensitivity and specificity while remaining inexpensive and accessible to healthcare professionals in developing countries.
AutoTB was founded in 2007.
