Breaking New Ground in Sepsis Diagnosis and Management with Non-Culture-Based Tests
The presentation discusses the current challenges in detecting sepsis-causing pathogens and how the use of non-culture-based-tests like T2Bacteria and T2Candida provide faster and more accurate results than the current standard of care, which relies on a positive blood culture.1
Speakers: Dr. Debra Goff, PharmD, FCCP, from The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Dr. Aparna Ahuja, the Chief Medical Officer of T2 Biosystems
