In an age of rising antibiotic resistance, treating patients with the right antibiotic quickly can be a matter of life and death. DZD uses novel sample prep, high throughput sequencing and machine intelligence to shorten the time it takes to identify a pathogen and predict its drug resistance profile from days to hours. Using our diagnostic, hospitals will be able to dramatically reduce hospital length of stay, the overuse of antibiotics, and save lives cost-effectively.
