We save lives by finding the right antibiotic on time and reduce spreading of antibiotic resistance
Resistell proposes an alternative to culture based antibiogram, the current gold standard in antibiotic susceptibility testing. Our offering is a diagnostic device. The method is based on the detection of movement caused by living bacterial cells. Because the test is growth independent, we reduce the time taken to get a result from days to minutes. Resistell provides information on which antibiotic should be used to treat the patient, and the concentration at which it should be administered.
It is estimated that at least 700 000 people die every year from the infections caused by antibiotic resistant bacteria. If no action is taken the death toll may reach 10 million a year by 2050. It is more than the number of people currently dying from road traffic accidents and cancer together.

Overuse of antibiotics 'risks return to dark ages of life-threatening surgery'

Warning comes as report shows 3 million common surgical procedures could be hazardous if infections become resistant to antibiotics.

We face a return to the dark ages of life-threatening surgery unless we can preserve the infection-killing powers of antibiotics, according to England’s chief medical officer.
