Eddy Chukwura Agbo is a Nigerian molecular biologist. He is the inventor of UMT.
UMT is actually a stick that precisely detects proteins from the malaria-causing parasites that are present in the urine of patients with fever.
UMT’s margin of error is almost nonexistent because the device only responds to all of the parasites causing malaria.
The test can diagnose malaria in 25 minutes.
