When a lethal and highly drug resistant strain of Klebsiella pneumoniae recently spread within the U.S. National Institutes of Health Clinical Center, researchers turned to the Roche GS FLX System to track the outbreak in real-time.

  • Whole genome sequencing of bacterial isolates revealed unexpected transmission pathways between infected individuals
  • Fast and accurate genomic results led to more aggressive decontamination procedures and better outbreak containment

See how scientists around the world are using 454 Sequencing Systems to provide fast and accurate detection of known or unknown pathogens when speed to result matters most.
