Rapid identification of pathogen and its resistance to antimicrobial drugs, and subsequent appropriate antimicrobial treatment are essential for correct patient outcomes. Conventional detection methods of bacterial resistance, such as disc diffusion, broth microdilution and automated instruments, are constantly widely used and primarily standardized. Nevertheless, the results cannot be obtained earlier than 48 h after receiving a sample, which may lead to prolonged use or overuse of broad… Expand
Advances in Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring Using Sensors and Biosensors: A Review
TLDR
This review provides an overview on novel biosensing strategies for the phenotypic and genotypic determination of antimicrobial resistance and a perspective on the use of these tools in modern health-care and environmental surveillance. Expand
Development of a Rapid, Antimicrobial Susceptibility Test for E. coli Based on Low-Cost, Screen-Printed Electrodes
TLDR
A low-cost diagnostic sensor test to rapidly pinpoint the correct antibiotic for treatment of infection, demonstrating a clear pathway to a low cost, phenotypic and reproducible antibiotic susceptibility testing technology for the rapid detection of E. coli within clinically relevant concentration ranges for conditions such as urinary tract infections. Expand
Current strategies to determine antifungal and antimicrobial activity of natural compounds.
TLDR
There are various methods to determine antifungal and antimicrobial activity such as diffusion methods, bioautography methods, dilution methods and other frequently used methods, to highlight the functioning, usage, advantages and disadvantages and to compare the techniques using different sources of the last years. Expand
Detection of expanded-spectrum cephalosporin hydrolysis by lateral flow immunoassay.
TLDR
A lateral flow immunoassay (LFIA) for the detection of ESC (cefotaxime) hydrolytic activity based on structural discrimination between the intact antibiotic and its hydrolysed product, which is efficient, fast, low-cost and easy to implement in the workflow of a routine microbiology laboratory.

Reducing the Risk of Transmission of Critical Antimicrobial Resistance Determinants From Contaminated Pork Products to Humans in South-East Asia
TLDR
This review highlights evidence for potential transfer of resistant bacteria from food animals to humans, and awareness and understanding of AMR through a description of the occurrence ofAMR in pig farm food chains under SEA management systems. Expand
A Comprehensive Overview of Antibiotic Selection and the Factors Affecting It
TLDR
External factors such as the patient's age, especially for pediatrics and geriatrics patients, need to be considered, as these groups have the highest health care burden but are among the most vulnerable when it comes to the side effects of drugs. Expand
Antimicrobial susceptibility testing by measuring bacterial oxygen consumption on an integrated platform.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that microbial exposure to antibiotics showed systematic OCR variations, which enabled determining minimum inhibitory concentrations for three clinically relevant antibiotics, ampicillin, ciprofloxacin, and gentamicin within a few hours. Expand
A New High-Throughput-Screening-Assay for Photoantimicrobials Based on EUCAST Revealed Unknown Photoantimicrobials in Cortinariaceae
TLDR
A photoantimicrobial high-throughput screening based on The European Committee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (EUCAST) was established and revealed two highly promising species, i.e., C. rufo-olivaceus and C. xanthophyllus. Expand
Nationwide surveillance of bacterial pathogens isolated from patients with acute uncomplicated cystitis in 2018: Conducted by the Japanese Research Group for Urinary Tract Infections (JRGU).
TLDR
Monitoring the development of drug-resistant bacteria isolated from acute uncomplicated cystitis and evaluating methodology of the survey conducted by collecting only clinical data are expected to be continuously performed as an alternative survey to conventional one collecting bacterial strains.
