Multianalyte automatic system for the detection of drug resistant bacteria

Objective

Infectious disease are responsible of high human health burden and cost. Time to diagnosis release and quality of the microrganism detection represent an area of interest for optical fiber based device application.
OPTObacteria propose an highly expert consortium in which 4 SME and 4 research peformers from 3 European countries would synergize their efforts to provide a unique Automatic Laboratory Detector (ALD) to deliver a drug resistance report in a 4 or 4-8 hours timeframe. The time is depending on the experiment required, it avoid bacterial grwoth time, typical of the antibiogram typical report and provide an detection up to low ng concentration or even low. With respect to other optical-based device (like SPR, surface plamon resosnance) many limitations are overcome.
