Our Journey Forward
No patient should suffer from a life-threatening, drug-resistant infection. We aim to transform infectious disease management through innovation in molecular diagnostics and information technologies. We focus on developing and validating state-of-the-art tests.
OpGen focuses on giving healthcare providers tools to combat life-threatening, antibiotic-resistant infections using molecular diagnostics and bioinformatics technologies. Our CLIA-certified diagnostic laboratory helps hospital staff affordably and accurately screen for, diagnose, prevent, and manage MDRO threats and infections. We have extensive experience in microbial genetics, molecular diagnostics, and bioinformatics. Out of our experience, we developed the Acuitas® MDRO Gene Test that directly detects ten genes unique to critical multi-drug resistant organisms (MDRO). Detection includes genes associated with Gram-negative carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae (CRE).
|The Acuitas® MDRO Gene Test detects the genes directly from a single patient swab or clinical isolate. Molecular methods, such as Acuitas, detect patients at risk for MDROs with more sensitivity than culture methods. The Acuitas CR Elite Test combines the gene test with phenotypic analysis to rapidly screen and confirm the presence of CRE.
|Our Acuitas Lighthouse™ MDRO Management System is a bioinformatics tool that combines test results and hospital data to identify and track dangerous MDROs, using real-time detection, monitoring, and management capabilities. This system guides infection control and antibiotic stewardship programs. For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
|The Acuitas Resistome Test rapidly and comprehensively genotypes MDRO culture isolates. Detecting more than 49 MDRO gene families, the test characterizes drug susceptibility and resistance phenotypes and aids in transmission investigations by selecting candidates for high-resolution testing using Acuitas Whole Genome Sequence Analysis. For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
