The Problem

Pathogen reporting can often be delayed or inaccurate, leaving locally trained health professionals unable to diagnose dangerous viruses that present with fever, aches and nausea, which are all common symptoms for Zika, Malaria and the Flu.

Global health surveillance is essential, providing vital data on disease incidence and drug resistance. However, data collection can be a sizeable undertaking, placing an additional burden on already stretched – and often under resourced – healthcare professionals.

“One important finding of the report, which will serve as a baseline to measure future progress, is that there are many gaps in information on pathogens of major public health importance.

In addition, surveillance of antibiotic resistance generally is neither coordinated nor harmonised, compromising the ability to assess and monitor the situation.”

Our Solution
Imagine being able to contain an outbreak of a novel virus before it became a global epidemic.
Imagine the world’s healthcare systems were one step ahead of antibiotic resistance.
Imagine researchers had the data they need to develop and test novel disease management interventions.
The connectivity of globally distributed Q-POC™ devices will make this possible.
As a future development, we envisage that globally distributed Q-POC™ devices will geotag and anonymise pathogen data, then send it to the cloud for real-time disease and drug resistance monitoring.

Just as the internet has revolutionised how we share information, this global surveillance system will transform the way we share genomic data.

This data will be used to monitor the spread of antimicrobial resistance, detect and contain a novel disease outbreak, and identify suitable targets for drug development.

  • Facilitate the rapid detection and containment of pathogens
  • Real-time reporting to national or international bodies
  • Improved, regular monitoring of drug resistance
  • Data for researchers to evaluate intervention efficacy
  • Data for public health bodies to allocate resources
GPS Location

Creating real-time maps of disease spread, enabling healthcare systems to finally be one step ahead of fast-moving pathogens.


Allowing healthworkers in the field to immediately share important pathogen data with public health officials, international bodies and researchers.


Looking at disease spread on a global level will give international bodies the information they need to coordinate pathogen containment.

Q-POC™ will allow doctors to deliver clinical, actionable test results at the point of care.

This powerful tool will decentralise important and complex testing.
We will be able to identify any emerging threat, whether it is natural or biowarfare, and identify drug resistant markers.
