PhAST is developing rapid diagnostic technology to provide actionable information on pathogens, with the ultimate goal of making the world a healthier place. They are working on developing technology that significantly speeds up both the detection of bacterial pathogens in patient samples and the choice of best antibiotic for treatment. PhAST brings the power of single-cell imaging to microbiology, harnessing the immediate and extensive information that imaging reveals about microorganisms. They hope to use this technology to develop a broad range of diagnostic testing approaches through single-cell imaging, to massively accelerate the detection, identification and antibiotic susceptibility testing of pathogens – from days down to minutes!
