FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: We have developed a robust and portable diagnostic device for detection of bacteria in ultra-low resource environments. It requires no power, no extra equipment and little training to operate. It is secure and self-sterilizes upon test completion. When mass-produced, we expect the cost to be less than $5 per device.
