Infection diagnostics 3.0: Faster thanks to nanopore sequencing

To ensure that sepsis patients receive appropriate antibiotics as quickly as possible, researchers have developed a diagnostic procedure that uses high-throughput sequencing of blood samples and delivers results much faster than conventional culture-based techniques. Thanks to the latest single-molecule sequencing techniques, this process has now been further improved so that pathogens can be identified after just a few hours.
