AIMRAR (2019-22)

AIMRAR (2019-): An integrated microfluidic – single cell Raman technology for rapid diagnosis of pathogens and their antibiotic resistance

Our most recent project, which started at the beginning of 2019, is to address the issue of antibiotic resistance. The project has been funded by Innovate UK as one of a number of ‘UK-China partnerships against antimicrobial resistance’. Epigem is working with Glasgow and Oxford Universities in the UK, and a number of clinical partners in China, to develop a microfluidics-driven test that will incorporate advanced Raman spectroscopy to characterise antimicrobial resistance.
