Many thanks to Clare McGrane at Geek Wire for her narrative describing ID Genomics’ fingerprinting technology.  Please read the full article at the link provided here (https://www.geekwire.com/2017/study-id-genomics-bacteria-fingerprinting-technology-helps-doctors-diagnose-infection-accurately/)   Text: The idea is simple: when a patient has a bacterial infection, doctors should find out what kind of bacteria it is so they can give the most effective treatment. But growing bacteria in a lab to identify it takes hours to days. That means doctors have

SEATTLE (March 29, 2017) Newly published, peer-reviewed results of observational clinical research have demonstrated that ID Genomics’ “bacterial fingerprinting” technology has the potential to improve antibiotic prescribing, reducing prescription errors and the overuse of broad-spectrum antibiotics, which could ultimately improve patient outcomes and slow the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The paper, “Bacterial Clonal Diagnostics as a Tool for Evidence-Based Empiric Antibiotic Selection,” was published in PLOS ONE by authors affiliated with the University of Washington,
