Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a major pathogen associated with complicating hospital and community medicine. Drug resistance increases the risk of complications and can challenge routine procedures such as surgery. As different species, such as Staphylococcus epidermidis, can also carry resistance, this can further increase the challenge of diagnosis using culture and/or molecular methods.
This webcast describes a digital PCR approach that uses a three colour detection platform to count the number of genes that confer resistance and compare this with the number of genes from S. aureus and S. epidermidis within a sample.
During this webcast the speaker will:
- Introduce 3-colour multiplexing digital PCR
- Describe the Naica System Workflow
- Provide a new method to determine resistance gene and drug resistance
- Present recent data on the identification of MRSA with the Naica System
- Discuss how digital PCR can be used for infectious diseases applications
The webcast will last for 60 minutes with an opportunity to ask your questions during the live broadcast!
