At TroZonX we translate research ideas into practical solutions.
We make simple and affordable Rapid Diagnostic Tests (RDT’s) which stand up to the rigours of hot and humid tropical zone countries.We partner other charities and humanitarian aid organisations to ensure delivery of the products to some of the poorest people on earth.
Pipeline and Technology Platform
The simple Lateral Flow Test (LFT) that anyone can use ….
TroZonX17’s LFT to detect Chagas Disease (or American trypanosomiasis) is in late stage development. We have built an international consortium of stakeholders from research labs to field workers. Following selection of the best engineered biomarkers we are now optimizing for high sensitivity and specificity in detecting the disease in characterized Biobanks. Next the test will be scaled-up and manufactured for clinical trials on indigenous and migrant populations. The Drugs for Neglected Diseases Initiative (DNDi) are currently testing new and better treatments for Chagas disease and welcome TroZonX17’s new universal test.
Our researchers have also undertaken early bioinformatics investigations into developing a test to detect the different forms of Leishmaniasis.
“Over a billion people are affected by NTDs but live on less than two dollars a day.”

The benefits to partnering with us
We at TroZonX17 are committed to sharing our expertise and applying our technology platform to detecting infectious disease anywhere in the world. Our organisation welcomes collaboration on other indications. If you have discovered a new biomarker or need a Rapid diagnostic Test to facilitate access to new treatments, please get in touch. In developing the test for sleeping sickness CEO Barrie Rooney worked with a network of international researchers and NGOs who share the objective of increasing access to treatment.
“It is important to treat disease at the source of infection to prevent further spread and to enable people to return to a productive life.’’
How you can help
Each test costs £500,000 to develop. Any donation, no matter how small, will help us to bring our simple and easy to use diagnostic test in reach of the millions who are at risk of infection.
