The firm said that the consortium will expand a database that provides insights for clinical partners and shows unusual patterns of drug resistance.

The company recently presented preliminary results from two large-scale studies on tracking infections and drug resistance in large hospital systems.

T2 and Allergan will develop a novel diagnostic panel for the detection of Gram-negative bacterial species and antibiotic resistance in patients with bacterial infections.

Researchers used metagenomic sequencing to profile gut microbial genes in pigs from three countries, representing hundreds of animals across 17 breeds.

A colistin resistance gene has been uncovered in samples from an ill Connecticut toddler, Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report says.

Using new and existing data, researchers documented mobile antibiotic resistance gene exchange between bacteria found within human and livestock animal guts.

Despite the array of tests available, some lab directors are still seeking broader functionalities and capabilities from the systems they purchase.  

The test was previously approved to detect and differentiate carbapenemase genes from bacterial isolates, and now has an expanded claim for testing directly from rectal swabs. 

Travelers can quickly pick up antibiotic-resistance genes, according to Dutch researchers.

The team used screening and sequencing to discover a patient sample of E. coli harbored resistance genes on a transmissible plasmid, raising concerns about a potential "superbug."
