Precise, Accurate Bacterial Identification System
This technology is a rapid, whole genome sequence analysis tool to determine the type of bacteria, resistance, and virulence that lacks biases introduced by culture-based methods. Background: The lack of accurate and precise methods to identify bacteria forces clinicians to use broad based antibiotic regimens. Unfortunately, only 20-40% of samples...
