Chinese scientists develop novel instrument for rapid profiling of antimicrobial resistance

Scientists from the Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology (QIBEBT) have introduced a prototype instrument that can directly measure antimicrobial resistant phenotypes at single-cell resolution from clinical samples within three hours, without the need for cell propagation.

Global antimicrobial resistance surveillance system (GLASS) report: Early implementation 2016-2017

This report draws information from Global Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System (GLASS) enrolled countries on the status of their antimicrobial resistance (AMR) surveillance systems, and reports official national AMR data for selected bacteria that cause infections in humans: Acinetobacter spp., Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., Staphylococcus aureus, and Streptococcus pneumoniae.

Global Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System (GLASS)

The Global Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System (GLASS) seeks to support the global action plan on antimicrobial resistance. The aim is to support global surveillance and research to strengthen the evidence base on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and help informing decision-making and drive national, regional, and global actions.
