Diagnostics & Stewardship
In vitro diagnostic tests play an essential role in combatting the Antibiotic Resistance threat. Our extensive Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS) diagnostics offer supports appropriate antibiotic use, helping to preserve their efficacy and curb antibiotic resistance.
It’s about having the right diagnostic tool to provide timely, relevant antimicrobial therapy information in every situation. See what just some of our AMS Diagnostic Solutions can do for you:
