MicroBioSensor has miniaturised and simplified conventional laboratory grade microbiology, packaging it into inexpensive, disposable in vitro diagnostic devices (IVDs) called MicroBioSensors™. Our devices function as early warning systems for microbial infection, and are designed to be compatible with and complementary to existing (lab-based) infection control processes and techniques.
The MicroBioSensors™ technology signals the presence of the high level of cells associated with an escalating infection, and rapidly identifies antibiotic sensitivities; indicating which drugs are most likely to be effective and expediting the time to effective treatment. These rapid point-of-care diagnostics are simple and convenient to use, and work using an easy to interpret colour-change system.
By providing early warning systems which flag the most effective treatment for an emerging infection, MicroBioSensor™ technology will improve the management of frontline antibiotic drugs – leading the battle against the growing tide of antimicrobial resistance.
