Why we come to work every day

WE LOVE WHAT WE DO! We wake every day psyched that we are on a path to creating ground-breaking diagnostics that will help guide clinicians with more rapid and actionable information about life-threatening infections, improve patient outcomes, and decrease the spread of infections caused by multidrug-resistant microorganisms. It’s an amazing feeling knowing we will make a significant difference to human health around the world.
