Why do we really need a FAST antibiotic efficiency test method?



 

 

Staphylococcus....

Therapy has to start NOW!

But is the microbe involved in this picture an

MRSA (Methycillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus)

 OR just a simple one?

Should I start with Methycilline or with a new, expensive, broad-spectrum compound?

 

 

 

 

I will get the answer of the antibiotic resistance tests the day after tomorrow...

Of course, I can change therapy then.

   

But would it not be much better to subscribe the antibiotics NOW, which is effective against THIS PARTICULAR microbe?

This is exactly the goal of this project. We aim to develop a diagnostic method, which can aid the decision.

We have the principle already, but there is a long way to go.

 

Check back from time to time, I will update the page as the work goes on.
