Description

Do you want to play hunting parasites in real blood samples? You only need one minute! MalariaSpot is a game developed by researchers who have gamified the process of diagnosing malaria. There are not enough specialists in the world to diagnose malaria... and you can help! We combine the results from several players to obtain an image analysis as reliable as the one made by a specialist.
While playing you will hunt for "Plasmodiums", the parasites responsible for malaria. The best you do it, the higher your score will be and the furthest you will advance in the game. Your goal? Find all the parasites in real blood samples from malaria patients.

You can find out more about the MalariaSpot Project at www.malariaspot.org

Thanks for helping us by playing! :)
