Using lasers to rapidly detect antimicrobial resistance

Antibiotic resistance is a growing global concern and major threat to human health.

The standard method used to detect resistance in bacteria, known as phenotypic antibiotic sensitivity testing, monitors bacterial growth over about 12 – 24 hours and is therefore a slow process. New rapid methods for antibiotic sensitivity testing are urgently needed to improve antibiotic stewardship.
