Epigem partners with Northumbria University to develop disposable TB testing kit

Leading micro-engineering company Epigem announced a new Knowledge Transfer Partnership with Northumbria University to develop a cost-effective tuberculosis (TB) testing kit.
Mr Canyelles Pericas, who has a PhD in electrical and electronics engineering, started with Epigem last month and said he was excited by the new project.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to work at the cutting edge of TB research. It’s great to work on something that could have such wide-reaching benefits for the developing world,” he said.
 “We need to develop a testing kit that uses a minimum of electricity but can also send information from some of the most remote regions of the world.
Epigem Managing Director Dr Tim Ryan said the new project will include the integration of several, currently bulky, electronics components and devices into a reasonable size system that is operational, robust, reliable and cheap.
