ITEL students create a malaria detector that does not need blood collection

A non-invasive malaria detector was created by two students from the Instituto de Telecomunicações (ITEL). This innovation makes it possible to carry out tests without having to take a blood sample.


They are Adama Dieme and Awa Dieme, two 19-year-old twin sisters who, according to Angop, are taking courses in Computer Science and Electronics and Telecommunications.

The project – on display at the 13th ITEL Technology Fair, which aims to promote the best works of the institution's finalists – enables testing to be carried out non-invasively, since it is not necessary to collect blood.

The project was highlighted by Cláudio Gonçalves, director of the institution, who also highlighted an initiative to control driving tests and a facial recognition access system, among the more than 50 projects exhibited at the fair, which started last Monday.

The official, quoted by Jornal de Angola, explained that the fair aims to bring students and the business sector closer together.

The Secretary of State for Telecommunications and Information Technologies, Mário Augusto Oliveira, considered that the event shows the potential of the students: "We have seen very innovative projects, conceived by a class of young people who show national pride", he said, also quoted by Angola newspaper.
