The most comprehensive PCR test for antibiotic resistance.

Detects 47 resistance genes, spanning 9 antibiotic classes and semi-quantitates 5 pathogens
The Acuitas AMR Gene Panel is a rapid diagnostic test for the detection of antimicrobial resistance genes and the semi-quantitative detection of pathogens. It is a highly multiplexed PCR test with an easy-to-use workflow and reports results in less than 3 hours. Results can be uploaded to the Acuitas Lighthouse for the prediction of antibiotic resistance and for real-time surveillance of AMR threats. It is available for research use only and not for use in diagnostic procedures.
