Optimizing Genomic Testing for Antibiotic Resistance
Existing tests can take days to identify the correct treatment for a patient’s infection. That’s why caregivers often use broad-spectrum antibiotics as a first defense—but when those drugs are overused, antibiotic-resistant microbes can emerge. OpGen is developing a better way to treat infection while preventing antibiotic resistance. We harness the power of informatics and genomics to identify antimicrobial resistant (AMR) organisms quickly and accurately, with an aim to improve treatment at the patient, hospital, and network level.
