As infectious diseases continue to take their toll around the world, there is an urgent need for rapid, highly sensitive, and specific clinical diagnostics that are easy to use, cost-effective, and can diagnose individuals infected with pathogens or exposed to toxins.

Accurate diagnoses are essential for public health laboratories, hospital-based clinical laboratories, and point-of-care settings so that appropriate therapy can be initiated. Medical diagnostics that will rapidly identify infections are a high priority, as are diagnostic tools to determine drug sensitivities and detect a broad range of infectious agents in clinical specimens.
