bioMérieux and you, partners in Antimicrobial Stewardship

Future generations need us to sustain antibiotic efficacy and curb resistance – and appropriate use of antibiotics is key. Diagnostics play an essential role, providing actionable information to support decisions for antibiotic initiation, optimization and discontinuation.

bioMérieux is committed to working with labs and healthcare professionals to raise awareness and find solutions for the global healthcare threat of antimicrobial resistance – and we’re dedicating our presence at ECCMID to this cause. Together with you, we are for advancing antimicrobial stewardship (AMS).

If you work in healthcare or diagnostics then bookmark this Symposium! You’re sure to find insights for your lab as four leading experts discuss innovations and strategies to boost the lab’s impact on AMS

Featured solutions for AMS

You can count on bioMérieux’s comprehensive range of solutions to help advance AMS… and ECCMID is the best place to discover our latest innovations!


One-card efficiency. More actionable information.

What if you could rapidly unlock more actionable antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST) information with no extra workflow steps? With VITEK® 2 OPUS AST cards – test up to 60% more antibiotics per card. Efficiently reduce the need for subsequent testing and report a refined set of results more easily.

PhenoMATRIX™ empowered by bioMérieux

Embedded interpretation intelligence for WASPLab®

WASPLab®’s new PhenoMATRIX™ expert module leverages artificial intelligence and embedded algorithms for rules-based sorting and plate interpretation. Focus your expertise on critical positive plates – with almost instant sorting, you may never need to touch a negative plate again!

BIOFIRE® FILMARRAY® Pneumonia Panel Plus

Don’t let pneumonia bugs sneak by undetected!

The BIOFIRE® FILMARRAY® Pneumonia Panel Plus is the first panel for 34 targets that cause pneumonia & LRTI. Simultaneous testing on the FILMARRAY® multiplex PCR means just two minutes of hands-on time and a turnaround time of about 1 hour. The FILMARRAY® range of panels is the largest syndromic testing menu commercially available.

bioMérieux is committed to raising awareness on the prudent use of antibiotics and the global healthcare threat of antibiotic resistance. One of the ways we support antibiotic awareness is through the Global Point Prevalence Survey (Global-PPS)* initiative.

This annual survey coordinates surveillance of antimicrobial consumption and resistance rates in hospitals worldwide. It is now the largest antibiotic utilization surveillance system in the world – more than 800 hospitals in over 80 countries and growing.

Enroll your hospital and get access to worldwide data on antibiotic use, and see how your hospital compares with hundreds of others both nationally and internally.
