BI Filler Photo-01We propose to develop a palm-sized microfluidic device which permits culturing of malaria-infected red blood cells under physiological conditions in suspension. The extent of parasitemia is determined by a label-free magneto-optic technique. Such a device will enable point-of-care antibiotic resistance assays for testing different malarial strains primarily targeting countries in the developing world.
