A growing global challenge
Bloodstream infection leading to sepsis is responsible for more than half of all deaths in hospitals and is the most expensive condition treated in hospitals. Mortality rate increases 6% every hour from onset. Therefore it is critical the right antibiotic treatment is determined quickly. Current methodologies require several long and labor-intensive steps, typically requiring 3 days to determine the effective antibiotic.
The Specific solution
Specific's Reveal AST/ID, provides antibiotic susceptibility results in hours instead of days (as detailed in the figures below). The Reveal AST/ID instrument and assay are cost effective and labor saving allowing clinics to readily deploy the Specific solution.
