The FDA-cleared T2Dx® Instrument is a fully automated, clinical multiplex benchtop diagnostic system capable of running tests directly from whole blood. The T2Dx Instrument utilizes T2 Magnetic Resonance (T2MR). This technology, which measures how water molecules react in the presence of magnetic fields, has been featured in over 200 peer-reviewed journals. This non-optical detection method does not require sample purification and analyte extraction. Eliminating these processing steps increases diagnostic test accuracy. It also enables a broad menu of tests to run on a single platform and greatly reduces the complexity of the consumables and the operator interface.
The tests developed on the T2Dx Instrument have the following characteristics:
- Rapid: Species-specific results in 3 to 5 hours with no up-front sample preparation.
- Simple: Fully automated system.
- Sensitive: Limit of detection of as low as 1 CFU/mL.
- Blood matrix compatible: No blood culture required.
A simple user interface
The T2Dx Instrument contains a user-friendly touchscreen display with a graphical user interface. This interface provides simple graphic and text prompts to guide the operator while loading tests into the T2Dx Instrument—and viewing or printing results. The touchscreen also provides administrative access for T2Dx Instrument maintenance and for managing results.
