Sepsis

In the 5 minutes it takes to browse through our website, approximately 75 people will die of sepsis globally2

  • Sepsis is one of the leading causes of death globally6
  • In Europe7 and the US8, sepsis is one of the most expensive causes of hospitalization
  • 30%-45% of sepsis patients receive inappropriate initial antimicrobial therapy5,9
  • Speed counts - results in minutes vs. hours offers the potential to tailor initial antimicrobial therapy which has shown improve outcomes5

FAST-IDTM BSI Panel*

Designed for rapid detection of over 95% of pathogens causing sepsis in minutes vs. hours or days

  • Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC)10 and UK National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)11 guidelines call for antimicrobial therapy within 1 hour of diagnosis of sepsis
  • Every hour of delay in appropriate initial antibiotic therapy increases mortality by 7.6% associated with severe sepsis5
  • The fully automated FAST-ID™ BSI Panel is designed to identify up to 84 pathogens in a self-contained cartridge in under an hour
