World's fastest antibiogram
Based on first in class nanomotion technology platform, our rapid AST saves lives by finding the right antibiotic on time and reduces spreading of antibiotic resistance
First in class nanomotion technology platform
How our rapid AST works
Resistell proposes an alternative to culture based antibiogram, the current gold standard in antibiotic susceptibility testing. Our offering is a diagnostic device. The rapid AST method is based on the detection of vibration caused by living bacterial cells. Because the test is growth independent rapid AST, we reduce the time taken to get a result from days to hours. Resistell provides information on which antibiotic should be used to treat the patient.

Resistell announces completion of clinical pilot performance evaluation study
Run in close collaboration with the microbiologists and infectious diseases specialists at the Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV) in Switzerland, the goal of the ongoing clinical study is to assess the sensitivity, specificity, accuracy and time to result of Resistell AST compared to the gold standard methods used at CHUV, namely Kirby-Bauer disc diffusion test and automated Vitek2 system® (bioMérieux). The study focuses on patients admitted to CHUV with bacteremia or sepsis due to Gram-negative bacteria. 13th December 2021
