Saving lives and improving healthcare by empowering clinicians to effectively treat patients faster
At T2 Biosystems, our mission is to save lives and improve healthcare by empowering clinicians to get patients on the right therapy faster. We come to work every day to solve critical needs in healthcare diagnostics with innovative solutions built on our game-changing T2 Magnetic Resonance (T2MR®) detection technology.
Sepsis claims more lives annually than breast cancer, prostate cancer, and AIDS combined. We’re focused on eradicating deaths due to sepsis by developing tools that help identify the most common and deadly sepsis-causing pathogens faster than ever before. Speed is critical in sepsis management. The faster patients receive effective treatment, the more likely they are to survive and have better outcomes. Better yet, early targeted therapy for bloodstream infections may prevent the progression to sepsis altogether.
Our blood tests provide actionable results in just 3 to 5 hours. The only other way to identify the species-specific diagnosis requires a blood culture, which can take 1 to 5 days or more. Today, T2 Biosystems panels are getting patients on the right therapy faster, and the expedited identification of negative test results allows rapid de-escalation of unneeded therapy. In partnership with hospitals around the world, T2 Biosystems technology is uniquely positioned to strike a huge blow to sepsis and the hundreds of thousands of lives it takes each year.
Our T2Bacteria® and T2Candida® Panels run on the automated T2Dx® Instrument. They are the first and only FDA-cleared blood tests that identify sepsis-causing pathogens without the wait for blood culture. As hospitals continue to adopt our technology, it will represent a paradigm shift that can potentially result in thousands of patients going home to their families instead of the tragic, and potentially avoidable, alternative.
We have an active pipeline of future products, including the T2Cauris™ Panel, and T2Lyme™ Panel, as well as additional products for the detection of bacterial and fungal pathogens and associated antimicrobial resistance markers, and biothreat pathogens
About our name: T2 refers to the measurement of the reaction of water molecules in the presence of magnetic fields. This is what our T2MR technology measures, and it is the inspiration behind our company’s name.
