Specific’s Reveal AST/ID™ system delivers phenotypic antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) and identification in an average of 4 hours, directly from positive blood culture.  Reveal AST provides minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) results with accuracies exceeding those of some reference methods, wide antimicrobial coverage, and identification of species responsible for >90% of bloodstream infections.  With sample preparation just a simple dilution of a positive blood culture fluid, the Reveal system uniquely speeds time to answer while offering a cost enabling widespread adoption.

Specific’s novel, patented small molecule sensor (SMS) arrays™ respond to the small, volatile, metabolic components produced by microorganisms to detect growth, assess antibiotic efficacy, and determine microorganism ID.
