Longitude Prize opens for entries on 18th November 2014 and will reward a new way to test patients and help target antibiotics effectively, contributing to a major reduction in antibiotic use across the world. Diagnostics will have a key role to play in this battle. Point-of-care test kits will allow more targeted use of antibiotics, and an overall reduction in misdiagnosis and prescription. Effective and accurate point of care tests will form a vital part of the toolkit for stewardship of antibiotics in the future. This will ensure that the antibiotics we have now will be effective for longer and we can continue to control infections during routine and major procedures.
