Novel microbial diagnostics enabling precise antibiotics treatment in One Hour
I find it incredible that doctors must still prescribe antibiotics based only on their immediate assessment of a patient’s symptoms, just like they used to when antibiotics first entered common use in the 1950s.

Current Standard practice in Treating Infectious Diseases

It takes 2 Days for Clinical Test Results

Non-specific drugs

Antibiotics administered ahead of test as treatment delay raises patent’s risks each hour.

Patients at risk

Receiving incorrect or unneeded antibiotics, exposure to excessive toxicity and complications.

Worldwide growing threat

Antibiotic Resistance and Super Bugs costs $20B in health care, $35B in loss of productivity annually in the US alone.

Healthcare burden

Acquired Infections cost $28-45B annually, 2M people infected, 90,000 die in the US.
