TF-Test (Three Fecal Test)

Medium tf test

Fapesp (XXXXXXXX)


We have transferred to the market a parasitological technique, named TF-Test, which allows to collect, store, and process feces for visual examination and diagnosis of intestinal parasites in humans. TF-Test is currently in use by approximately 60 Brazilian laboratories, which perform almost 100,000 exams per month. We have continued the investigation to make the TF-Test suitable for the automated diagnosis of gastrintestinal parasites in humans and animals. We have also conducted epidemiological studies in brazilian schools (video in Portuguese, Pedreira, SP).
