Incorporate T2Direct Diagnostics to rapidly provide targeted treatment for bloodstream infections from common ESKAPE pathogens that can lead to sepsis
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.
Rapid and accurate diagnostic tools
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.
Improved patient outcomes
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.
T2Direct Diagnostics: Same-day test results. Improved patient outcomes. Reduced cost.
