on Antimicrobial resistance
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) develops when bacteria, fungi or viruses are exposed to antibiotics, antifungals or antivirals.
As a result, the antimicrobials become ineffective and infections may persist. In addition, medical interventions including surgery, chemotherapy and stem cell therapy may become impossible.
AMR is considered the biggest global threat of Health and Food Safety.
AMR Insights is committed to eliminating Antimicrobial resistance because it does not accept that millions of innocent people need to die as a result of resistant bacteria and other microorganisms.

Rapid antimicrobial resistance detection for early directed therapies against infectious diseases
In recent years, antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has reached proportions of such significance to propel national and global health authorities to regard AMR as today’s “serious threat” worldwide.
