50% of all antibiotics prescribed

in the United States are either unnecessary or inappropriate.

Get it RIGHT the FIRST time

The effectiveness of antibiotics has been greatly compromised by the ability of pathogens to develop antibiotic resistance.

Antibiotic resistance occurs when a pathogen genetically adapts to the drug(s) designed to destroy it. These genetic variations are defense mechanisms that can cause the drug(s) to be ineffective. Unfortunatlely, these variations can easily be passed to other pathogens through reproduction or acquisition.

NCF has developed tests to identify genetic variations that allow pathogens to become resistant to antibiotics. This information is instrumental to the provider when trying to select an effective antibiotic regimen for the patient.

It is our goal at NCF to offer providers access to technology that will empower them to practice precision medicine.
