Game-changing Study Aims to Identify Pneumonia Pathogens Faster with Breakthrough Technologies

Game-changing Study Aims to Identify Pneumonia Pathogens Faster with Breakthrough Technologies

Pneumonia has been around for centuries and remains a major cause of morbidity, mortality, and healthcare expense today.

The most commonly used method for identifying respiratory pathogens in pneumonia - bacterial culture - was first developed in the 1880s. Though there have been many breakthroughs in our treatment of pneumonia - such as antibiotics and mechanical ventilation - our clinical identification of respiratory pathogens still relies on the time-consuming culture-based techniques.
