Fast, simple, accurate
The first automated gutworm diagnostic in the world.
WORMA facilitates fully integrated Faecal Egg Counting (FEC) for humans and animals.
Diagnosis of Gutworm using Computer Vision
Using complex computer algorithms, WORMA can detect parasites without any human intervention.
This system can distinguish between different species of worm. Counting the number of each gives valuable information about the type and severity of the infection present.
Right: Several species of worm eggs are identified by WORMA.
Designed as a streamlined analysis platform
WORMA eliminates the hassle and manual processing associated with conducting a Faecal Egg Count - it does it all for you, with great consistency.
Beyond this, it fully manages tests to deliver results, and track disease burden over time.
A disease that affects everyone, globally
Intestinal worms cause a number of health problems, in humans and animals. These include, anaemia, intestinal obstruction and learning difficulties in school-age children.
Worm infections have a significant negative impact on food production. Many species of worm steal nutrition from their host, which reduces animal weight gain.
The lack of a fast diagnostic makes it difficult for health professionals and animal owners to create a sustainable treatment strategy. As a result, there is now widespread resistance to the effective drugs.
