As recently as 2001, North Carolina was the only state in which researchers had found drug-resistant bacteria. Today, these superbugs can be found in all 50 states.
By 2050, drug-resistant microbes will be the leading cause of death in the U.S., taking 10 million lives per year. Over the next 35 years, 300 million people worldwide could die of microbial infections.
We’re quickly returning to a pre-penicillin world—but we can still fight back with better technology. 3i Diagnostics delivers this technology in ways that are helping clinicians and researchers do their part to counter the threat of drug-resistant microbes.
