Our Firm

Through the truly revolutionary technology of Multiplexing, it is now possible for NGIVD to replace the currently used time consuming, costly, and restrictive ‘Elimination’ approach of diagnostics with the more accurate, affordable, and accessible ‘Selection’ approach. With this technology and approach, it is now possible for syndromic identification. This means, many ailments can be screened with just a single sample and test to pin-point the exact problem; enabling medical practitioners to provide targeted treatments with shortened treatment times and faster recovery.

The NGIVD Value Proposition

Kala-Azar (Leishmaniasis)
Fevers of Unknown Origin

The multiplexing platform can be adopted to multiple disease areas, by changing the diagnostic assay (or test menu). These products will enable better diagnosis in even low-resource settings. In the last 4 years, NGIVD has developed a unique multiplex diagnostic test for detection of all forms of Tuberculosis, using blood as a sample, and is developing products for Kala Azar and fevers of unknown origin, making a difference in the lives of millions.
