The main purpose of the Antimicrobial Resistance Diagnostic Challenge is to incentivize the development of one or more rapid, point-of-care in vitro diagnostic tests that would be of significant clinical and public health utility to combat the development and spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria or diagnostic tests that distinguish between bacterial and viral infections. The 18 specific drug-resistant bacteria are identified in Table 3 of the National Action Plan for Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria .
