Curetis GmbH

Curetis GmbH

Curetis offers innovative diagnostic solutions for molecular microbiology, that allow for the rapid and comprehensive detection of pathogens and their resistances to antibiotics in a broad range of infectious disease indications.

Curetis’ goal is to become a leading provider of innovative diagnostic solutions for molecular microbiology.

Curetis’ Unyvero System is a versatile, fast and highly automated molecular diagnostic platform for easy-to-use, cartridge-based solutions for the comprehensive and rapid detection of pathogens and genetic antimicrobial resistance markers in a broad range of severe infectious disease indications. Results are available within hours, a process that can take days or even weeks if performed with standard diagnostic procedures.

Infections with increasingly resistant pathogens is one of the biggest threats to healthcare globally. Improved and faster diagnostics are key in overcoming this challenge. The rapid diagnostics solutions of Curetis facilitate improved patient outcomes, stringent antibiotic stewardship and health-economic benefits.

Unyvero in vitro diagnostic (IVD) products are marketed in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the U.S.

Curetis’ wholly owned subsidiary Ares Genetics GmbH develops next-generation solutions for infectious disease diagnostics and the data-driven development of antibiotics. The ARES Technology Platform combines the presumably most comprehensive database worldwide on the genetics of antimicrobial resistances, ARESdb, with advanced bioinformatics and artificial intelligence.
