According to the World Health Organization (WHO) 20% of all documented S. aureus infections are attributable to MRSA, although for some developing countries this value can exceed 80%. Thus the rapid and accurate detection of MRSA in low resource settings (LDR) is becoming essential. Yet conventional microbial detection methods take from 1-5 days to identify MRSA. Recently, new types of automated laboratory methods as well as advances in nucleic acid testing, microfluidic technology… CONTINUE READING
