    T2 Biosystems has done what many said could not be done. Its T2MR technology generates accurate, rapid results using direct sample analysis of whole blood without relying on blood culture. The T2Candida Panel represents how T2MR is the next breakthrough in medical diagnostics, and it has significant potential to save lives and reduce healthcare costs.

    What we need is a test that is 90% sensitive and 90% specific. That’s the test that makes a difference. If you’re at 90/90 then the negative predictive value is exceptional in virtually every population you use it in...that’s really clinically the most meaningful performance that we can achieve.

    We believe combining our collective expertise with T2 Biosystems' proprietary T2MR platform may enable us to develop a fully differentiated diagnostic panel for the detection of Lyme disease, an area of critical need where delays in providing appropriate treatment to patients can result in significant morbidity and unnecessary costs.
