Suspected Intra-abdominal sepsis

Patient presents with suspected sepsis

Presentation: 53-year-old immunocompromised, morbidly obese female with recent history of surgery to drain an intra-abdominal abscess. Patient presented at the emergency department 8 days post-op with fever, chills and abdominal pain. Sepsis was suspected and patient was admitted with orders for blood cultures, T2Bacteria and broad spectrum antibiotics.


Identify sepsis causing pathogens in less than 5 hours while blood cultures incubate

Imagine 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. 


19th-Century diagnostic methods make it too easy for “ESKAPE” pathogens to escape

In 2004, microbiologist Carl Nathan, M.D., wrote in a Nature commentary that:

"Treating infections with pathogen-specific rather than broad-spectrum antibiotics (whenever possible) will require prior, rapid, accurate and specific diagnosis. It makes no sense to use 21st-century technology to develop drugs targeted at specific infections whose diagnosis is delayed by 19th-century methods."1
