Farmers, ranchers, and other food producers around the world are challenged by an invisible enemy every day. Parasites lurking in food sources can go undiagnosed and untreated, which often leads to infection in the food and in humans. Until now, diagnosing and treating these parasites was complicated, time consuming, and expensive. Now, food producers have an Artificial Intelligence on their side.
Through this technology, food producers now have the ability to focus on individual samples, scan the samples, analyze the findings, and produce a comprehensive report identifying the parasites.
Using Artificial Intelligence, a sample is inserted into a slot, and a high powered microscope focuses in on a potential problem.
The microscope then scans the sample looking for any signs of parasites. During the scan, thousands of photos are taken while the Artificial Intelligence discerns parasites from other debris.
The sample is analyzed for up to seven different parasites. The Artificial Intelligence is so powerful it has the ability to measure the size of the ova present and indicate the degree of the infection.
After the scan and analysis are complete, a comprehensive report is created that can be used to successfully treat the sample source.
With this Artificial Intelligence solution, food producers can stop the spread of parasites between their animals, crops, and even into human consumption. The technology can also be used to eliminate the need to treat food sources with chemicals and medications.
Taeniasis is a parasitic infection caused by tapeworms. This infection can be contracted by eating raw or undercooked beef. Taeniasis is especially dangerous because symptoms are usually mild to nonexistent, and when left untreated, infection leads to a disease that causes seizures.
Tapeworms are found in most places across the globe, however, many countries are suffering from taenia endemics. Here is a map that shows the areas of the globe most affected by taeniasis.
Even when cattle are specifically tested for tapeworm infections, proper diagnosis can be difficult, especially with a large group of animals. In a study, inspectors failed to detect 26% of known infected cattle.
With our technology, cattle farmers can prevent tapeworm outbreaks by having access to reliable, regular testing. This will result in fewer quarantines and a decreased need to medicate sick animals. Fewer infections at the source will decrease incidences of taeniasis in humans as well. Our technology is:

With meat consumption on the rise, cattle farmers need to find an effective way to diagnose and treat infections. The Artificial Intelligence that QMIRA™ developed can help promote growth and weight gain by keeping cattle healthy to support farmers who are faced with a growing demand for beef.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has a stated goal of eliminating taeniasis in selected countries by 202o, which will require a reliable way to test, diagnose, and treat those infected. The Artificial Intelligence that QMIRA™ developed can be universally and effectively applied to food production operations of all sizes around the globe, allowing them to resolve infections before they have a chance to spread to the human population.
