Dr Al Edwards and Dr Partha Ray have been working along with Capillary Film Technology, Design Science and the National Institute of Animal Biotechnology in India to create an easy to use and portable test to tackle AMR in dairy farming. The project funded by Innovate UK involved developing a rapid test to help vets identify effective antibiotics in the treatment of mastitis – an infection in dairy cattle. By treating the animal with a known effective antibiotic allows for a reduction in the misuse of antibiotics, a step to reducing antimicrobial resistance.
