New Technologies for Pathogen Detection and Identification


Microbiological analysis has progressed considerably in the twenty-first century through the advent of rapid microbiological methods.

Tim Sandle has written an article for The Scientific Ravi (Government CollegeUniversity, Lahore). 

Here is an extract:

"This is most apparent within the clinical and pharmaceutical sectors. One area of much needed advancement is with pathology. Here clinical investigators can take samples from the field, from patients or from the environment, and undertake rapid analysis, obtaining results within hours rather than the days or weeks required with conventional methods. Time is often a consequence of slow-growing, difficult to culture, and unculturable microorganisms. Time-toresult is critical when making decisions about patient health. In this article, some of the most recent advances with rapid methods for pathogen detection are considered."
