Low-cost technological innovations aid in diagnosing infectious diseases
Preface.- Introduction.- Advances in Point-of-Care Diagnostics for Infectious Diseases.- Lab-on-DVD: Optical Disk Drive Based Platforms for Point-of-Care Diagnostics.- High Performance Paper Microfluidic Malaria Test for Low-Resource Settings.- Microfluidics for Fast and Frugal Diagnosis of Malaria, Sepsis, and HIV/AIDS.- Perspective from Industry: AROMICS.- Funding Frugal Innovation in Global Health: Philanthropy, Aid, and Industry.- Conclusion.
This book introduces readers to the concept of 'frugal innovation' and describes novel low-cost technologies that aid in diagnosing infectious diseases. Rapidly deployable, portable, and affordable diagnostic tools have the potential to tremendously benefit populations in resource-limited settings and improve global health outcomes. Specifically, the book includes the following features:
Cutting-Edge Research : Thorough coverage of scientific advances related to frugal bioengineering that have been developed within the last few years. A few examples of technologies covered in detail include low-cost paper-based and CD-based microfluidic diagnostic systems.

Industry and Non-Profit V oices : Chapters written by scientists currently working in industry and philanthropic sectors.
