Abstract:

This project will develop a bench-top system for the rapid identification of bloodstream infections. Rapid accurate infectious diagnostic systems are needed to identify effective therapy, reduce mortality, morbidity, and treatment costs. QuantaSpec will adapt its FDA funded work to develop a rapid automated accurate infection identification system based on FTIR spectroscopy. FTIR spectroscopy is inexpensive requiring no reagents and minimal sample preparation. QuantaSpec has demonstrated 100% accuracy in identifying micro-organisms at the species and sub-species level using FTIR. Furthermore, the capability to identify new organisms can be rapidly added with software updates. This system is urgently needed to save the lives of combat casualties.
