bioMérieux, Inc. Sponsored Webinar
To Support World Antibiotic Awareness Week

Antibiotic resistance is one of the most pressing challenges in healthcare today–improving antibiotic prescribing and use is crucial. Carbapenem antibiotics are last-resort drugs used to treat bacterial infections, but carbapenem-resistant bacteria are on the rise.

Cabapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) are rapidly emerging resistant strains. This webinar will discuss why identification of cabapenem resistance is crucial to orient antibiotics and save lives.

Presented by:
