Technology: A game changer in HIV response

Thursday 23rd August 2018


We are proud to have been involved in the consultation, prototyping and production of the Samba II, now out in the real world and making a difference. 

SAMBA II machines, used for viral load testing and Early Infant Diagnosis (EID) is changing the face of HIV treatment in resource limited settings. The machines are simple to use, robust and heat stable, enabling them to be used at the point of care and replacing previously used large conventional machines.

the Samba II machines have enhanced quality of care for people living with HIV; they allow services to be offered at the point-of-care because patients get results within hours instead of weeks.
