The scourge of malaria infection continues to strike hardest against pregnant women and children in Africa and South East Asia. For global elimination, testing methods that are ultrasensitive to low-level ring-staged parasitemia are urgently required. In this study, we used a novel approach for diagnosis of malaria infection by combining both electronic ultraviolet-visible (UV/vis) spectroscopy and near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy to detect and quantify low-level (1-0.000001%) ring-staged malaria-infected whole blood under physiological conditions uisng Multiclass classification using logistic regression, which showed that the best results were achieved using the extended wavelength range, providing an accuracy of 100% for most parasitemia classes. Likewise, partial least-squares regression (PLS-R) analysis showed a higher quantification sensitivity (R2= 0.898) for the extended spectral region compared to UV/vis and NIR (R2= 0.806 and 0.556, respectively). For quantifying different-stage blood parasites, the extended wavelength range was able to detect and quantify all thePlasmodium falciparumaccurately compared to testing each spectral component separately. These results demonstrate the potential of a combined UV/vis-NIR spectroscopy to accurately diagnose malaria-infected patients without the need for elaborate sample preparation associated with the existing mid-IR approaches.
