Low-cost Method to Detect Jaundice in African Newborns
A new low-cost method has been developed to measure total bilirubin in newborn children who are at risk of jaundice in low-resource settings, reveals a new study. This is the first clinical study that developed a low-cost, hand-held jaundice detector. It was invented by Rice University students for NEST360Â°, where an international team of scientists, doctors, and global health experts took part in the competition and won $100 million from the MacArthur Foundation.
