About this entry

Using only a handful of genetic targets, IDG has developed a proprietary set of binary genomic barcodes to quickly identify these ‘crime families’ by using its culture-independent barcoding technology, CLoNeT. These barcodes are linked to our reference metadata biorepository, BactNet, which connects them to responses to 22 commonly used antibiotics. Using our diagnostic tools, clinicians can stratify patient risk and determine which antibiotics, if any, should be used to treat the patient. We have already conducted feasibility studies by comparing results from our technology to empirical prescription methods in situ in the urgent care clinical setting.
