Clinical
Diagnostics

A growing number of bacteria are becoming resistant to currently available antibiotic treatments at an unprecedented speed. Without effective antibiotics, major surgeries and cancer therapies in the field of clinical diagnostics will be compromised. The earlier you detect microbial contamination the faster you can act to ensure you apply the right drug.

The Challenge

Microbial pathogens are responsible for 2 out of 10 deaths according to the World Health Organization (2016). Some reports predict that by 2050, there is more chance that our children or grandchildren would die as a result of antimicrobial resistance than cancer. Yet while the development of a new drug takes around 10 years, there is another important thing we can right now do to stop this dangerous development. Diagnostics! The earlier you detect a microbial contamination the faster you can act to ensure your food is safe, or that you apply the right drug.
