Welcome to the training site for the NG DetecTool

The NG DetecTool: An innovative device for the rapid detection
of broad-spectrum beta-lactamases

Who is this training for?

The NG DetecTool is designed to assist facilities where rapid detection can/should be used to provide patients with a more targeted, efficient and cost-saving treatment regimen. These facilities include intensive care units, surgical units, patient admission units, clinical microbiology laboratories, and nursing homes.

We highly recommend this course for staff at these types of facilities, including clinicians, clinical microbiologists, laboratory assistants, as well as any other potential device users.

This training course is intended for individual online study, as well as for group training in a lab setting. In the latter case organising a hands-on training with the device is also suggested.
