Symposium @ ECCMID 2019

How laboratories can help detect AMR and sepsis sooner

Beckman Coulter, a global leader in clinical diagnostics will be demonstrating its latest comprehensive solutions in microbiology, urinalysis and hematology at the 29th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases (ECCMID).

During the conference, Beckman Coulter is also hosting a symposium where attendees will learn how the laboratory can help physicians detect antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and sepsis sooner. Today's laboratories are facing more challenges than ever. Increasing concern over sepsis accelerates the need for accurate, rapid diagnosis. Coupled with the growing threat of emerging AMR, routine antibiotic susceptibility testing and minimum inhibitory concentration accuracy is needed to not only help detect AMR, but also to meet the clinical needs of all patients.
