OpGen Highlights Acuitas® Analytical Validation Data for Rapidly Predicting Antibiotic Resistance Using Drug Resistance Gene Profiles at ECCMID
The poster, titled “Analytical Validation of a Rapid Molecular Test for Semi-Quantitative Detection of Bacterial Pathogens and Antibiotic Resistance Genes in Urine,” demonstrated the semi-quantitative detection of five pathogens and 47 antibiotic resistance genes from primary urine specimens and bacterial isolates. Results from the
A second poster, titled “Comprehensive analysis of fluoroquinolone resistance in Pseudomonas aeruginosa,” demonstrated an example of OpGen’s whole genome sequencing analysis and prediction pipelines. In the study of 616 isolates, sensitivity and specificity for prediction of resistance to two fluoroquinolone antibiotics ranged between 91% and 95%.
This press release includes statements relating to OpGen’s analytical validation results for its
