The spread of antibiotic resistance threatens the efficacy of antibiotics and critical medical procedures. Studies show that more resistance is observed in countries where the environment is polluted, especially with human waste and antibiotics.
Environmental monitoring is an important component of preparedness for the silent pandemic of antibiotic resistance, which has recently been overshadowed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

WHAT WE DO

So how to start monitoring without previous experience? How to get access to robust monitoring tools without large upfront investments? Do you need reliable and easy to interpret analysis results quickly? That’s where we come in.

Resistomap combines deep capabilities in molecular genetics and data science with high-throughput real-time PCR (qPCR) technology to provide its customers with a complete laboratory and analysis service for environmental monitoring of antibiotic resistance. We strive to provide our customers with comprehensive and tailored solutions to fit individual research needs.

WHO WE ARE

Founded in 2018 by a microbiologist and a data scientist, Resistomap has embodied interdisciplinary collaboration from day one. As a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Helsinki, Dr. Windi Muziasari gained years of experience and world-class expertise in monitoring antibiotic resistance from environmental samples using high-throughput gene profiling, the SmartChip Real-Time PCR system (qPCR). William Nurmi, an agile data scientist, joined Resistomap to develop software for automated data analysis. Supported by Nordic Laboratories’ state-of-the-art facilities, Resistomap’s journey started.

Resistomap is the first company in the world to commercialise antibiotic resistance monitoring in the environment. From our headquarters in Helsinki, we strive for global environmental monitoring. Our vision is to be a global leader in environmental antibiotic resistance monitoring services.

Team

At Resistomap, we are a group of global citizens with different backgrounds, all passionate about combatting antibiotic resistance issues. We have grown into a team of nine people including microbiologists, data scientists, social scientists, and graphic design and marketing professionals.
