Training HeroRATs to sniff out TB

APOPO trains HeroRATs to save lives, by using their exceptional sense of smell to sniff out Tuberculosis (TB) in human sputum samples. The rats offer a faster, more accurate diagnostic method, which helps to significantly increase TB case findings and reduce the spread of the disease.
