MicroInvestigate

Abstract

Have you (or someone you loved) ever been prescribed the wrong antibiotic for an infection? MicroInvestigate provides an in-house kit that rapidly identifies human pathogens of various types at the molecular level. Furthermore, this kit identifies microbes in less than two hours with transportable technology that can be used in the most remote field locations, hospitals, research centers and doctors’ offices. Today, this diagnosis requires either time-consuming outsourcing to labs or the acquisition of machines costing more than $20,000. The MicroInvestigate kit, enables medical specialists and other healthcare providers to give patients more accurate and rapid diagnoses at a fraction of the cost while accelerating treatment, reducing the number of repeat visits, decreasing antibiotic usage, and shortening hospital stays.
