Solutions to Manage the Antimicrobial Resistance Threat
Do you need more information
Antimicrobial resistance is a major healthcare challenge of worldwide proportions. Impacting both people and animals, coordinated action to combat resistance is required in both human and veterinary medicine.
The judicious use of antibiotics in both humans and animals is essential to preserve their therapeutic efficacy and prevent the further emergence and spread of multi-drug resistant bacteria.
ANIMALS, HUMANS AND ANTIBIOTICS !
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is caused largely by the misuse and over-use of antibiotics in both humans and animals. In addition, increasing global trade and travel, as well as growing human and animal populations, has made AMR a global concern due to the more rapid transfer and spread of multi-drug resistant organisms.
Physicians and veterinarians have an essential role to play in managing the emergence and spread of AMR and preserving antibiotic efficacy through the judicious use of these drugs (antimicrobial stewardship).

A “ONE HEALTH” APPROACH TO HUMAN AND VETERINARY HEALTH
Just as microbes know no borders, there are no borders between human and veterinary health.
As part of the Mérieux family’s commitment to serving public health, both human and veterinary aspects have always been naturally treated within the single sphere of “One Health”.
For 50 years, bioMérieux has been engaged in a race against the constant evolution of bacteria, the development of infectious diseases and pandemics. Through our extensive experience in microbiology, it is our role as a daily partner of laboratories worldwide to stay one step ahead of the microbes.
BIOMERIEUX - PROVIDING ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE SOLUTIONS TO VETERINARY LABS
bioMérieux is dedicated to helping veterinary labs of all sizes and stages of development provide actionable results faster.
We know that time-to-diagnosis and therapeutic efficacy are paramount to case/outbreak management, infection control, the fight against multi-drug resistance and reducing animal healthcare costs and losses.
As a veterinary microbiology laboratory, your primary goal is to deliver the most pertinent results as quickly as possible. At bioMérieux, we share this goal.
INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT
Our high-performance solutions for microbial identification (ID) and antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST) can help you gain precious hours, minutes and seconds between the time of sampling and a reliable test result.
Depending on your laboratory set-up, this process can be based either manual (API®, chromID®, Etest®, ATB®) or automated (WASP®, VITEK® MS, VITEK® 2).
For your veterinary laboratory, rapid, reliable ID/AST means better control of animal disease and reduced risk of human contamination. It also supports detection and surveillance of emerging bacterial resistance patterns. Find out more, visit our AST webpage
