Project Description

Krishi makes animals healthier. Treatment of bovine respiratory disease fails 33% of the time leading to losses of almost $1 billion/year in the US. Farm-based diagnostics can improve the success rate of treatment and reduce losses. Krishi is enabling simpler diagnostics using DISCOVER: Diagnostic Sensors for Cause of Bovine Respiratory disease. To enable low-cost sensors for widespread use, they are building these sensors using paper based materials and isothermal molecular assays.
