TDM of clinically relevant antibiotics
Quantitative test - fast and easy
Chromsystems offers a CE-IVD method for the quantitative determination of ampicillin, cefepime, ceftazidime, linezolid, meropenem and piperacillin in human serum and plasma samples. The robust HPLC method is simple to perform and easy to establish - our support team will also assist you.
Accurate monitoring of the antibiotics concentration by TDM can prevent suboptimal dosing and allows tailoring the drug regimen for each specific patient.
Ideal for antibiotic stewardship programs (ASP)
An increasing number of scientific studies show that stewardship programs can improve the treatment of infectious diseases.  These programs also intend to minimise antibiotic resistance  while saving costs. [3, 4]

Therapeutic Drug Monitoring in Intensive Care
This article discusses the importance of appropriate drug concentrations in antibiotic therapies to and help prevent over- and underdosing. This approach also reduces the risk of new multidrug resistant strains emerging and helps to provide the most effective drug dose to the patient.
