"Using Tm’s platform approach, we have been able to greatly enhance our genetic screening abilities to the benefit of the large communities we serve," said Dr. Susan Gross, Co-Director of the Division of Reproductive Genetics at Jacobi Medical Center.
"The Tag-It™ technology has allowed us to create assays that generate accurate results rapidly while minimizing operator time."
Some MRSA infections could be tackled using widely-available antibiotics, suggests new research. A team of scientists used genome sequencing technology to identify which genes make MRSA susceptible to a previously defined combination of drugs. They identified a number of mutations centered around a protein known as a penicillin-binding protein 2a or PBP2a.
