This portable digital X-ray machine runs on a Mobisun Solar rechargeable power bank, which ensures up to 150 people can be screened for tuberculosis (TB) using its cutting-edge technology, complete with the CAD4TB software to immediately identify potential TB patients in the community. It is particularly crucial as it ensures a clean energy source is taken to the doorsteps of the hardest-to-reach communities in Nasarawa State, Nigeria. This work is supported under the USAID-funded TB LON 1&2 project in Nasarawa State, Nigeria. 

Rather than burn fossil fuels through generators due to the very epileptic power supply in the country, the Lab in the Model Comprehensive Health Clinic SHABU runs on clean green energy, providing 24-hour TB testing capacity at no harm to the environment.
