The kits can detect more than 1,000 antimicrobial resistance gene variants, including mobilized colistin resistance (mcr) and extended-spectrum beta lactamases.  

BD will supply its diagnostics and informatics products as part of the contract with Fleming Fund to take on AMR in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.

Thermo Fisher will codevelop LC-MS workflows for infectious disease detection with NanoPin and will commercialize Q-linea's antibiotic susceptibility testing platform.

The funding will support up to 90 percent of development costs for the Klaris system, which purportedly performs phenotypic testing in four hours.

MinIon sequencing identified pathogens and antimicrobial resistance genes in the gut of preterm infants with suspected necrotizing enterocolitis.

The seven-year grant renews funding for the Antibacterial Resistance Leadership Group, led by Duke University and UCSF, with $15 million in 2020.

The method, dubbed GoPhAST-R, was codeveloped by researcher from the Broad Institute and NanoString, which now hopes to work with a partner to commercialize it.

The T2Resistance Panel, which runs on the T2Dx instrument, detects 13 genes conferring antimicrobial resistance directly from whole blood in three to five hours.

The company said it will use the funds to accelerate expansion of its MeMed BV test, which distinguishes between bacterial and viral infections.

The firm's tick-borne pathogens panel was also recently the subject of a clinical study, showing high accuracy in detecting numerous infectious agents.
