Bacterial resistance assay in real time PCR on array for patients with Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP)
The aim of the project is a pre-validation of a new real time assay (VAP-technology) for the rapid detection of the bacterial species and their resistance in pneumonia. The assay was developed in order to provide microbiology laboratories with a rapid and multidata assay that would allow Intensive Care Unit (ICU) physicians to define a rationale for a first intention therapy tailored for individual patient. The project is a collaborative work between the industries and two universities laboratories for performing the validation studies.
