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.

The simple RDT that anyone can use...

TroZonX17’s rapid test to detect Chagas Disease (or American trypanosomiasis) is in late stage development. Our selection of engineered biomarkers requires optimization and further evaluation to confirm they are sensitive and specific to detecting the disease. Then the test can be scaled up and manufactured for field trials. Field trials will begin Q1 2020, however this depends on fundraising efforts to support the manufacturing process. Once the tests are produced, the Drugs for Neglected Diseases Initiative (DNDi) will incorporate our test into their ongoing field trials.  DNDi is investigating new and better treatments for the disease. 

 

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.
