Non-invasive and portable device that can detect pathogen presence on skin and soft tissue infections, within few minutes using multi-wavelength fluorescence spectroscopy combined with advanced image processing and machine learning techniques.
The device can differentiate gram positive, gram negative type of bacteria along with fungus, that aids in right treatment of antibiotic/antifungal agents at an early stage of infection
What we love about Adiuvo
Skin and wound infections are a common problem for India’s poor. Current methods of diagnosis rely heavily on clinical judgement and cultures
Because of the time required for cultures, many infections are treated with a generic broad spectrum antibiotic leading to ineffective treatment, longer healing times, and the creation of increased antimicrobial resistance
The device can detect co-colonized wounds, which are majorly misdiagnosed during swab. Also aids in regular monitoring of wounds, post surgery.
