Lateral Flow assay and reader for Malaria detection (LFA)
- Extensive training of technicians on recognising malaria parasites on slides, where experts are not widely available, and the problem of some individuals who have malaria in blood too low to detect on slides
- This training aims to use ultra-sensitive malaria detecting LFA to find out if they are sensitive enough to the task
- Presently only at UCLH
- Study participation involves blood sampling at timepoints one, two, and three months.
