Cepheid’s Commitment to Addressing the Global Antimicrobial Resistance Threat

Real-World Workshop Series Webinar - December 2013

Presenter: Fred C. Tenover Ph.D., D(ABMM)

Dr. Fred Tenover, Cepheid's VP of Scientific Affairs, will discuss the latest advances in the fight against HAIs and the role that Cepheid's technology plays in assisting clinicians to better address the problem of antimicrobial resistance. Dr. Tenover will highlight some of the key points in the recently published CDC Report "Antibiotic Resistance Threats in the United States, 2013". In particular he will be discussing the report’s fourth Core Action on developing new antibiotics and diagnostic tests and how Cepheid's HAI Consortium, current and future portfolio of HAI and Critical Infectious Disease tests, as well as the new RemoteXpert product's resistance tracking capabilities help clinicians around the world in the battle against antimicrobial resistance.
