Community pharmacy and diagnostics firm team up to combat antibiotic resistance
Lochardil Pharmacy will work with Odx Innovations to speed up the development of the Odx’s rapid diagnostic test, which is aimed at helping clinicians correctly prescribe antibiotics for urinary tract infections (UTIs).
For the partnership, Lochardil Pharmacy will serve as a sample collection point for volunteers enrolled in clinical research. The research will be used to help Odx gain regulatory approval for its diagnostic medical technology. Odx’s test is aimed at helping clinicians decide whether treatment for UTIs is needed, potentially reducing antibiotic misuse. If treatment is needed, then medical staff can choose the most effective antibiotics much faster than the standard culture and sensitivity.
