Sepsis committees are chartered with introducing new technologies and processes to treat patients with the right therapies more quickly. The inclusion of T2Direct Diagnostics™ in a hospital’s sepsis bundle can enable faster time to targeted therapy, improved patient outcomes, and de-escalation of antimicrobial drug use.
The T2Direct Diagnostics family of tools provides rapid and accurate results directly from whole blood in 3 to 5 hours. These tools can identify the most serious bacterial and fungal pathogens often not responsive to first-line empiric therapy.
The T2Bacteria® and T2Candida® Panels are the only FDA-cleared diagnostics that provide species identification for some of the most common and deadly sepsis-causing pathogens – without having to wait 1 to 5 days or more for blood culture results. Early targeted therapy improves patient outcomes; every hour delay of effective antibiotic therapy increases mortality by almost 8% in patients with septic shock.1 A positive T2Bacteria or T2Candida test result may enable rapid targeted treatment and prevent a serious bloodstream infection from progressing to sepsis.
