The Gaithersburg, Maryland-based company continues to await US Food and Drug Administration clearance for its antimicrobial resistance test.

With whole-genome sequences and other analyses, researchers delved into drug resistance and more in 600 staphylococcus isolates from high-touch surfaces in East and West London.

Researchers sequenced more than 1,700 Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates from European hospitals to better understand the spread of drug-resistant strains.

The iC-GN Assay detects target DNA and identifies gram-negative organisms associated with gram-negative bacteremia, and three antibiotic-resistance markers. 

The firm's CEO said it is continuing to develop its distributor network to make its tests available in centralized and decentralized settings globally.

The funding will be used to purchase research equipment supporting the development of a personalized approach to infectious disease treatment.

Roche said that the test aids clinicians in accelerating tuberculosis diagnosis and treatment by detecting resistance to the antibiotics rifampicin and isoniazid.

The PCR-based test is designed to detect 47 antibiotic resistance genes in less than three hours from bacterial isolates to help guide treatment decisions.

Based on sequences for hundreds of E. coli ST131 lineage isolates, researchers propose a model that involves negative frequency-dependent selection on accessory parts of the genome.
