Mission: Daily, poor people are dying from preventable diseases due to not being diagnosed. Often, medical professionals have medicine to treat various diseases, but do not have an affordable manner to diagnose those diseases. Science with a Mission was founded in 2001 in order to bridge that "diagnostic gap". By using the technology of immunoassays, we can develop affordable tests for diseases. These tests can travel to remote, rural areas around the world.

Science with a Mission, Inc [SMI] is dedicated to sending medical diagnostics to developing countries. It is a very small organization that has helped tens of thousands of people in countries around the world that relies almost entirely on small donations from individuals and assembly work by volunteers. Volunteers help at anything from assembling the diagnostic test cartridges to putting labels on kits or counting out droppers. Assembling and distributing tests that require no special training to use, no running water, and no electricity for illnesses like malaria, hepatitis, HIV, and others -and getting them to places that do most often do not have access to other medical diagnostics - are the key to this organizations mission.
