The Impact of Rapid Results
Rapid detection and identification of bloodstream infections by real-time PCR – directly from blood.
Provides rapid species identification of pathogens causing blood stream infections.
SeptiFast is designed to detect and identify the most important bacteria and fungi causing nosocomial bloodstream infections – within just a few hours. SeptiFast detects the pathogenic bacteria and fungi directly from whole blood, no preculture is required.
Rapid pathogen detection by molecular diagnostic tools may facilitate the rapid diagnosis of bacteremia/fungemia and earlier administration of appropriate antibiotic therapy, while also reducing inappropriate overuse of broad-spectrum antibiotics.1,2
