Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and multidrug-resistant (MDR) infections are a growing concern in Malaysia. The culture method is the traditional approach used for detecting AMR and MDR bacteria, but it has several limitations. To address these limitations, a sequencing-based diagnostic test known as 'triUMPh enviro' is proposed to be developed to provide faster and more sensitive and specific detection of AMR and MDR bacteria. Sequencing-based approach has several advantages over traditional methods for which it helps to provide data for wide range of resistance mechanisms.
