Quansys Biosciences launches Q-Plex (TM) Micronutrient Array to combat malnutrition
Effective and affordable new tool can identify up to seven key nutrition markers and malaria infection with a single test.
…The Q-PlexTM Micronutrient Array responds. Developed through a collaboration between the global health nonprofit PATH and bioscience developer and manufacturer Quansys, the test can simultaneously measure up to seven nutrition-related biomarkers in a single sample of human serum. Using the test, countries and researchers can gather national data on micronutrient deficiency status and use it to implement and assess targeted interventions. Results also help leaders accurately establish the magnitude of the deficiency, identify subpopulations at greatest risk, and monitor the efficacy and progress of nutrition programs
