ASTar - True MIC values within 6 hours, fully automated

Within six hours ASTar™ performs an Antibiotic Susceptibility Test (AST) from a positive blood culture and delivers a specific answer on what antibiotic is effective on the pathogen and how high concentrations are required for fighting the infection. A process that today takes 24-48 hours. The shortened diagnostics time will mean less suffering for sepsis patients, less overuse of broad spectrum antibiotics, and reduced costs for society.
