Welcome to the website of the MCD-project. MCD stands for Mosquito Contamination Device and that is exactly the goal of this project to develop A low cost Mosquito Contamination Device (MCD) for sustainable malaria mosquito control. 

We envision the MCD as a device that can effectively lure, infect and contaminate malaria mosquitoes in tropical field settings. Our target is a MCD that can offer a novel way to combat mosquitoes in resource-poor settings where there is no power or great infrastructure present yet.
