REDS: Rapid Ebola Detection Strips was founded by Emory students Rostam Zafari and Brian Goldstone. With the dramatic increase in cases of Ebola, the team saw it necessary to find a quick way to detect this horrible disease. Considering the fact that the majority of people that contract Ebola are within a days commute to the nearest hospital, they decided to design a detection strip that can be used out on the field without needing any machinery/electricity. They’ve designed the product and the experiments, all they need now is the money to test their ebola detection strips.
The team hopes to raise $14,500 through their campaign on IndieGoGo by October 12!
