Quick way to determine bacteria’s antibiotic resistance

Bacteria’s ability to become resistant to antibiotics is a growing issue in health care: Resistant strains result in prolonged illnesses and higher mortality rates. One way to combat this is to determine bacteria’s antibiotic resistance in a given patient, but that often takes days — and time is crucial in treatment. Scientists have developed a technique that can sort antibiotic-resistant from ‘susceptible’ bacteria, and it happens in a matter of minutes.
