Because of the growing concern associated with antibiotic medication and resistance, the World Health Organization emphasizes the need to have effective, rapid, easy-to-use and low-cost diagnostic tools. Since none of the current antibiotic susceptibility testing methods comply with the current needs, a new photonics-based concept was worked-out in a collaboration between Universiteit Antwerpen (Medical Microbiology and Product Development) and VUB (Brussels Photonics) and will be validated in this IOF PoC project.
