Title Image analysis of bacteria growth for a fast point-of-care test of antibiotic resistance
Abstract As an assignment within our BioImage Informatics Facility, I have been working for a start-up company, Astrego Diagnostics AB, with analysis of bacterial growth. The aim of the project is to develop a fast point-of-care test for diagnosis of urinary tract infections. With this new method it is possible to determine if the patient has a bacterial infection within 10 minutes, and within 30 minutes it is possible to determine if the bacteria are susceptible to candidate antibiotics. Image analysis is a crucial part of this method and I will present some of the challenges and approaches used to solve them.
