T2Bacteria Positive while Cultures Remained Negative

An elderly patient presented to the ED with nausea, myalgia, and insomnia.


This case highlights the benefit of the T2Bacteria Panel’s ability to provide species identification in the presence of antimicrobial therapy rapidly.  Using T2Bacteria enabled the identification of E.coli in a patient on inadequate therapy for a urinary tract infection (UTI).


Rapid T2Bacteria Result Helps Prevent Potential Complications due to Premature Discharge

A patient was admitted with a two-day history of right lower quadrant pain, fever, and vomiting


This case highlights the benefit of rapid species identification with the T2Bacteria Panel and the potential prevention of additional sequelae with a premature discharge from the ED.


High Negative Predictive Value Enables De-escalation of Therapy

A 72 year-old-patient presented to the ER with a productive cough for three days, left flank pain, and intermittent nausea.


This case highlights the benefits of using the high negative predictive value (NPV) of the T2Bacteria Panel for early de-escalation of therapy, mainly when using antimicrobial agents that can commonly cause acute kidney injury.
