Summary: In the PAPYRUs project we aim to prototype a multiplexed platform for the fast detection of different resistance determinants, which will be determined during the project, based on the current prevalence of antibiotic resistant bacteria in Spain. This platform will consist of a paper-based molecular lateral flow test able to act at point-of-care without additional equipment or specialized personnel for the technique to be performed.
