All-in-one

ALEX offers an all-in-one Software-as-a-Service with focus on antibiotic resistance and typing, enabling use for both surveillance and treatment decision support for clinicians and microbiologists.

Easy-to-use

The analysis runs with minimized hands-on effort and there is a strong focus on simplified and efficient result visualization for non-specialized users.

Up-to-date

We are continuously updating the databases and extending the scope of the service by expanding software functionality and species coverage.

Version 1.0

The first version focuses on Staphylococcus aureus which is one of the most common pathogens in the hospital setting. When resistant to methicillin it is commonly called MRSA, which is a bacteria conferring serious infections and extensive problems for patients worldwide.

How does it work?

ALEX analyzes raw data from genome sequencing machines and matches the processed data to the proprietary databases that have been manually curated containing only clinical relevant genetic markers. The result in the form of a resistance and typing profile is delivered to the client in minutes.

Upload

Raw data generated by a sequencing machine is uploaded to our cloud based web-service.

Data analyzed

The data is analyzed and matched against our database of resistance and typing patterns.

Results

The result is delivered back and can be used as a decision support for antibiotic treatment of the infected patient.

Antibiotic Resistance

Antibiotic resistance is one of the most serious threats to human health in modern times. The world is about to enter a post antibiotic era where minor infections will be lethal. Better diagnostic methods are needed to treat patients more efficiently and diminish the spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria.
