antibiotic resistance

With plasmid and chromosomal sequence data, European investigators identified three main routes for carbapenem antibiotic resistance spread in Klebsiella pneumoniae.

In PLOS this week: recessive mutation tied to early-onset dilated cardiomyopathy, epigenetic analysis of lung adenocarcinoma, and more.

The loan will help fund Scope's development of its PCR One point-of-care molecular diagnostic instrument and related respiratory virus panel.

The PCR diagnostic device is a palm-size, single-use, disposable device that detects N. gonorrhoeae and determines if it's susceptible to an antibiotic.

Caspr's assay can be transported at room temperature and performed without complex external equipment, making it ideal for low-resource environments.

Roche will have non-exclusive access to SpeeDx's existing tests and technology to enable expansion of diagnostic products for antibiotic resistance in STIs.

The survey further characterized antibiotic resistance genes within these communities, suggesting that such an approach could aid in infection control efforts.

In PLOS this week: genomic analysis of multidrug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains from Colombia, inflammatory response signatures in cancer, and more.

The company's revenue was largely attributed to its Acuitas AMR Gene Panel and Acuitas Lighthouse informatics platform.

The method can be used with isothermal amplification and paper-based readouts to detect infectious disease drug resistance in low-resource areas.
