To give doctors access to complete, that is, actionable information on antibiotic susceptibility of bacterial pathogen
To do so within the current workflow and cost structure
of the healthcare system
All of this, in order to:
Data recorded for inpatient stays with bacterial infections in USA: *Health Serv Res. 2019;00:1–11 **Infect Control Hosp Epidemiol. 2019;40:847-854
**AMR in G7 Countries and Beyond, OECD 2015
Antibiotic treatment is only effective when bacterial pathogen
is susceptible to the drug.
Precise treatment of MDR (Multidrug-Resistant) pathogens require precise AST information about as many antibiotics
In worst cases, they require information about synergistic action of pairs of antibiotics.
While there are close to a hundred antibiotics availible clinically, testing all of them manually is practically impossible. And most automated systems offering the inexpensive (5-10 USD) tests include only qualitative information about a subset of antibiotics.
Effective testing of pairs of antibiotics is currently not availible.
BacterOMIC takes antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST) to the next level
by offering quantitative evaluation of all clinically relevant antibiotics
and identificaton of synergistic pairs of antibiotics
The system uses the most trusted microdilution AST, combined with cutting-edge microfluidics to provide unprecedented information density on a single disposable panel. Our technology delivers the first fully comprehensive test – a single panel contains up to 80 clinically relevant antibiotics, or up to 20 checkerboard combinations of antibiotics. For each antibiotic BacterOMIC provides a true MIC value.
640 isolated microchambers, each containing
a different antibiotic environment
Analysis of up to 60 panels in parallel,

The PCR|ONE system is ideally suited for use in hospital admission wards for systematic and immediate screening of patients. The PCR|ONE system meets key needs: economic efficiency, rapid screening, and rapid adaptation to the changing landscape of the genetic variants of pathogens.
The unique speed and simplicity of use of the PCR|ONE system provides the shortest time to results as well as gold - standard confidence in results. PCR|ONE test panels are executed within 15 minutes with only ~1 minute of hands - on time. A single PCR|ONE system can test up to 30 samples within an 8-hour shift. This high bench-space and cost efficiency means that this system is ideal for integrating into the laboratory environment.
Immediate molecular diagnostics should be available right at the doctor’s office, where patients seek immediate — and informed — help. Many common conditions such as influenza require simultaneous tests against multiple genetic targets. The PCR|ONE platform delivers this capacity in point-of-care format
Ease of use enables placement of PCR|ONE in a variety of clinically relevant locations, from Point - of - Care and centralized laboratory to airports, drive through stations and any other public places relevant during the spread of pandemics. We can test the high-risk suspect patients selected by a less specific method (e.g.temperature measurement). This reduces costs (by eliminating the isolation of actually negative - i.e. noninfected people), and isolating infected people in an instant.
Non-traditional use scenarios gained momentum, including point - of - care (POC) Dx at pharmacy and retail settings. PCR|ONE fits this trend well thanks to the physical multiplexing that allows offering a wide range of tests and their rapid adaptation, and the ease of use allows it to be located outside the hospital or laboratory.
PCR|ONE allows for non-laboratory workers to perform tests on-site in a plug - and - play mode, so all entrants can be tested to minimise the risk of infection of the most vulnerable elderly people. Moreover, the short TTR offered by PCR|ONE further simplifies the logistics, and resonable cost of a single test increases accessibility.
