Overland Park, KS – ImpeDx Diagnostics (a privately held company) is developing a multiplexed phenotypic diagnostic system to perform extremely rapid Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing (AST) on a variety of different patient sample types (swabs, blood, urine, sputum, etc.) that will allow clinicians to provide targeted, effective antibiotics to patients in hours, rather than days or weeks as with currently available products.   Our system compliments existing rapid pathogen identification systems already on the market and provides the full answer clinicians require in order to implement appropriate patient care, improving patient outcomes while substantially reducing healthcare costs and the fostering of antibiotic resistance.  For more information, visit www.impedx.com.
