An Integrated Tool-Kit for the Clinical Evaluation of Microbial Detection and Antibiotic Susceptibility Point-of-Care Testing Technologies

An Integrated Tool-Kit for the Clinical Evaluation of Microbial Detection and Antibiotic Susceptibility Point-of-Care Testing Technologies

Objective

The TEMPOtest project proposal addresses the need to “design integrated tools for closing the gap between microbiological point-of-care technologies and actual clinical need”, by designing, developing and implementing a microbiological point-of-care “tool-kit” comprising i) a survey providing information on Europe-wide demand for point-of-care microbiological tests, ii) an archive of freely available quality control/quality assurance microbiological test samples for rapid evaluation of point-of-care microbiological tests, iii) a freely available Comparison Tool comprising specimen archive/software tool to rapidly determine sensitivity, susceptibility, reproducibility and time to diagnosis for new microbiological point-of-care technologies compared to current routine clinical microbiological protocols, iv) the optimization and development of electronic nose and antimicrobial resistance gene microarrays as future technologies for microbiological point-of-care testing and v) the development of supporting database and internet facilities.
