Project Description: f(x)'s Serotyping Assays allow rapid, economical determination of the types of Pneumococcal bacteria being carried in a population. This allows development and deployment of effective new vaccines against the the specific types of bacteria actually present in that population. Present methods require culturing, and are much slower, costlier to perform.
