IISc develops hand-held device to detect malaria 21.10.2014 deccanherald.com
Researchers at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) have developed a portable hand-held device that can detect malaria within a short span of time and has the potential to aid the global fight against the disease especially in areas with minimal facilities where the disease might be rampant.

The tests can be conducted by a layman. Speaking to DeccanHerald, Dr Sai Siva Gorthi, Assistant Professor, ...
