Cytecom - portable bacteria detection device offers faster diagnostics
A discovery by researchers at the University of Warwick School of Life Sciences offers a new technology for detecting bacteria in minutes instead of waiting for lab-test results which can take days. Delays in detection can cause significant damage; infections can become life threatening very quickly if not identified and treated with appropriate antibiotics. For example, 8% of people with the severe blood infection sepsis will die for every hour of delay in proper treatment.
