Lower price for nutrition assessment tool expands global access

PATH and Quansys Biosciences, Inc. improve access of the Q-Plex™ Human Micronutrient Array for low- and middle-income countries with a new price of US$1.43 per analyte, making it even more affordable and accessible to the countries that need it most.

Q-Plex Micronutrient Array

Quansys Biosciences and global health nonprofit PATH have collaborated to build a new multiplex tool that will help to improve the health of women and children around the world. Using the test, countries and researchers can gather national data on micronutrient deficiency status and use it to implement and assess targeted interventions. Results also help leaders accurately establish the magnitude of the deficiency, identify subpopulations at greatest risk, and monitor the efficacy and progress of nutrition programs.
