Designing a mobile testing kit to reduce anti-microbial infection in cattle farms in rural India

August 2020 

We are part of a team including veterinary scientists and microbiologists at the University of Reading who won Innovate UK funding to develop this mobile testing kit for use in resource-poor settings, where traditional lab-based testing systems are expensive and inaccessible to ordinary farmers and vets.

The project team have been working remotely during the Covid-19 pandemic and we have been using a variety of digital resources to support collaboration and co-design across continents.

Work has included the development of visual identity system, a project website, step by step user experiences, detailed design of infographics as well as advice on product and process design.

Our aim is to test a prototype service in October 2020 and to apply for development funding in early 2021.
