Takara Bio is committed to the fight against antimicrobial resistance
We are in the midst of a rise in levels of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The amplification of AMR results in an increasing number of infections that are more challenging—and sometimes impossible—to treat effectively. AMR is now one of the greatest threats to both human health and the systems in place to safeguard it.
To help address the need for an improved understanding of this threat, Takara Bio and its partners are committed to delivering solutions for detecting AMR in the environment.
An article published in USA Today describes how the SmartChip Real-Time PCR System offers flexibility, speed, and cost benefits to help users such as Resistomap deliver solutions to efficiently monitor AMR in environmental samples. This, in turn, helps control the spread of AMR and manage its threat.
