Culture Free ID and Antimicrobial Resistance Markers
POCARED Diagnostics, a leading in-vitro diagnostic and pre-analytical technologies manufacturer announces a breakthrough in real time identification of bacterial species and antibiotic resistance markers utilizing its proprietary technology in the P 1000. POCARED's P 1000™ is a rapid automated platform that employs intrinsic fluorescence; optical data analysis and artificial intelligence to analyze multi-dimensional optical characteristics of microorganisms.
POCARED's P-1000 has successfully identified 5 antimicrobial resistance markers: KPC, NDM, vanB, mecA and OXA.
Performance data will be presented at the ASM 2015 General Meeting, May 30 to June 2 in New Orleans, LA.
The P 1000 is revolutionizing the detection, identification and enumeration of bacteria and yeast together with their antimicrobial resistance markers in a few minutes directly from culture. It is a fully automated, reagent-free, real-time and easy to operate platform.
