Rapid advancements in PCR testing can replace existing culture & sensitivity testing, providing faster results, preventing unnecessary antibiotic overuse, promoting AMR stewardship.
Contamination control of bioprocessing cell lines is essential. The same environments that encourage desirable microbiological growth also encourage growth of undesirable contaminants including yeasts, molds, mycoplasma, bacteria, and viruses.
Improvements in qPCR testing are bringing point-of-care molecular diagnostics into practical use.
Pandemic containment in the United States has proved ineffective due to a lack of preparation and deployment of modern pathogen-detection technologies. Improved point-of-care molecular diagnostics will save lives when the next pandemic emerges.
qPCR is used to quickly identify pathogens and antimicrobial resistance markers in a small sample and is indispensable for modern point-of-care molecular diagnostics.
