Urinary tract infection (UTI) is the most common infection experienced by humans after respiratory and gastro-intestinal infections. Further, treatment of UTIs by non-evidence based prescription of antibiotics by the physicians (without taking into consideration the underlying pathogenic organism) has resulted in increased drug resistance and rise in costs of treatment. This is leading to increase in the cost of therapy due to higher price of second line of therapy and also the indirect costs involved in multiple visits to the health facility. This project aims to develop a point-of-care device that will result in quick detection of urinary pathogens for patients in rural and semi-urban areas, thereby doing away with the burden on patients to travel to a pathology centre and wait for test results. The project would pave the way for a rational drug therapy to the patients and also help in solving the problems related to large scale development of drug resistance in the developing countries.
