TF-Test Quantified

Medium tf test quantified

We have developed a new parasitological technique, named TF-Test Quantified, suitable for the quantified diagnosis of Schistosoma mansoni (eggs). This specie of parasite affects over nine million people in Brazil and over one hundred million people in the world. In this project, we aim to automate the detection and quantification of eggs of Schistosoma mansoni by image analysis and validate the diagnosis for use in governamental programs.
