Industry outlook

It currently takes days to test a patient sample to find out if they have an infection, what they are infected with and to which drugs that infection might be susceptible. This can lead to a delay in treatment or the wrong treatment being prescribed. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are over two million cases of drug-resistant bacterial infections every year.
