Africa Covid Diagnostics

ICGEB Side Event at the African Society for Lab Medicine Conference

The seminar entitled, “Rollout of a colorimetric RT-LAMP protocol for an efficient health emergency response” is the topic of a side event at the African Society for Laboratory Medicine Conference 2023 (ASLM).

The seminar will take place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC), Cape Town, South Africa on 14 December, from 6.30 – 8.00 pm (SAST).

The aim is to disseminate the results achieved by the COVID-19+ project and to stimulate discussions on making the diagnosis of (re)emerging pathogens more accessible in Africa, through simple, but robust technologies like RT-LAMP, now being optimised for the detection of arboviruses, such as ZIKA.
