Empowering appropriate antimicrobial use with rapid diagnostics.

Test Target Treat

Antimicrobial resistance is a huge global health issue and contributes significantly to patient mortality and rising healthcare costs across the world. There is a clear need to quickly and accurately identify the nature of a pathogen in order to define the most appropriate treatment strategy with the optimal clinical result.

The Test Target Treat™ initiative from Alere empowers you to make targeted treatment decisions sooner with rapid diagnostics, reducing inappropriate antimicrobial use and the spread of resistance. 

We hope to create a shift in treatment trends, moving away from the broad over-prescription of antibiotics, which spawned the growing prevalence of serious healthcare-associated infections like MRSA, towards more targeted therapy. 

Discover our range of rapid diagnostic tests that support your clinical diagnosis and guide antibiotic decision making.
