Antibiotic therapy leads to overall body emaciation. Therapy should be precisely matched to the bacteria that cause the disease for treatment to be effective and quick. The current method of antibiotics selection is antibiogram. The test requires specialized personnel and a laboratory. It delays the implementation of the treatment because of the minimum time required is 48h. The cost of the test makes it unusable for every patient. ECDPC reported 7 drug-resistant strains of bacteria in 27 EU countries. A rapid development of antibiotic resistance is caused due to an excessive and unjustified prescription of antibiotics. According to CDC 2013 report, 50% of antibiotics prescribed by doctors are unnecessary.

The Project aims for the possibility of quick and effective antibiotic selection. This will reduce the mortality caused by improper treatment of bacterial diseases. The precise selection of an antibiotic for infection treatment will also slow down the drug-resistance process.

Antibiotic therapy leads to overall body emaciation. Therapy should be precisely matched to the bacteria that cause the disease for treatment to be effective and quick.

The Project aims for the possibility of quick and effective antibiotic selection. This will reduce the mortality caused by improper treatment of bacterial diseases. The precise selection of an antibiotic for infection treatment will also slow down the drug-resistance process.

Polish National Health Fund pays GP doctor 2,5 $ for examination of one patient and performing antibiogram test costs more than 6 times that. The GP assigns broad-spectrum of antibiotics or accordingly to his experience. The wrong selection of antibiotics increases the length of treatment and fasten the bacteria immunization.

The Project significant decreases testing time and minimize costs. A laboratory will not be required and the test can be carried by untrained personnel. It will resolve the problem of lack of funding for patients testing.

Using our algorithm and computer analysis we are able to replace the complicated laboratory test with simple one using only the smartphone, cheap device for sample testing and testing plate. The cost of a single test does not exceed 2,5 $.
