“Bacteria continuously develop new ways to resist antibiotics—once a drug is approved for use, the countdown begins until resistance emerges. In fact, resistance has even been detected before FDA approval. To save lives and protect people, it is vital to make technology accessible to hospital labs nationwide. We hope this pilot will help ensure our newest drugs last longer and put gold-standard lab results in healthcare providers’ hands faster."
Jean Patel, PH.D. D (ABMM), Science Team Lead, Antibiotic Resistance Coordination and Strategy Unit, Centers for Disease Control & Prevention

Enrique Lores, President of HP Imaging, Printing and Solutions
“Through our pilot with the CDC and working with public health labs in the US and world-wide, we hope to help CDC in its efforts to change the way the healthcare industry tests antimicrobial resistance to help people with the most critical health needs. We are honored to collaborate with the CDC and others in our commitment to innovate solutions that can enhance drug susceptibility testing, ultimately improving patient health and combating antibiotic resistance.”
Annette Friskopp, Vice President and General Manager, Specialty Printing Systems, HP
