Failure to diagnose happens mainly due to lack of technical skills and, secondly, due to lack of equipment.

Malaria is the leading cause of death and disease in many developing countries, where children and pregnant women are the most affected groups.

Lack of skills often lead to an increase in false positives, with prescription of medication being based only on flu-like symptoms. Therefore, there is an urgent need for new tools that can facilitate rapid, correct and easy diagnosis of malaria, especially in regions with limited access to quality health services.

The challenge posed to Everythink was to create a microscope, from scratch, that would allow an ordinary smartphone to capture images under the right conditions so that the image could be processed and the sample analyzed.

Thus, it was thought an equipment that is simple to use by anyone, where there is a drawer for placing the sample, which is then manipulated by a table with three axes to allow the correct positioning, focus and depth of field, backlighting and obtaining a 10x10 image matrix. The necessary energy comes from the smartphone itself, which is, then, placed on a top support and aligned with a specific set of lenses to obtain the necessary magnification to obtain the images.

A final challenge was to create equipment designed to be manufactured by 3D printing, thus allowing only essential components to be shipped and in-situ, democratized manufacturing and assembly.
