Infectious Disease - PathoTrack™
Infection is a leading cause of morbidity worldwide and incurs huge economic costs for both patient diagnosis and hospitalisation. Traditional wet-lab culture techniques often do not recognise particular bacterial strains, such as the recently identified Campylobacter ureolyticus, nor do they incorporate the resulting host response.
We are currently developing a platform called PathoTrack™ which is designed to develop in silico techniques that can support rapid molecular diagnosis of infection. These techniques will be embedded in an efficient, easy-to-use, auditable, and secure way, from the beginning to the end of the diagnostic process.
