PITBUL is an international research project established to help end Tuberculosis (TB) by developing an ultrafast test that can diagnose the disease in minutes.

The goal of the project is to use cutting edge technology to create an easy, safe to use and extremely fast test for TB that is based on DNA detection. Current DNA-based detection of TB can take several hours.

The PITBUL ultrafast TB test will be cost-effective and affordable for poor communities with high TB burden. The test will be used at the Point of Care, meaning settings where people infected with TB will first seek diagnosis, like hospitals, clinics and community centers.
