Faster targeted therapy and reduction in empiric antifungal costs
The T2Candida® Panel is the first and only FDA-cleared direct-from-blood fungal pathogen detection assay, providing same-day results directly from a whole blood specimen for the most clinically relevant fungi.
T2Candida’s greatest clinical utility is for patients in any of these conditions1:
Admitted to the ICU
Have febrile neutropenia
Have septic shock
Have an LVAD and evidence of active infection
In ICU at high risk for candidemia
Reduction in mortality rates: Candida infections have an overall mortality rate of 40%, but if patients receive targeted treatment within 12 hours, the mortality rate can be reduced to 11%.2,3 T2Candida provides a clear and compelling solution, with results in just hours without waiting for slow-growing fungal infections, which are often mistaken as bacterial infections, to reach positivity.
Unprecedented speed and accuracy: The T2Candida Panel pivotal clinical trial demonstrated results in 3 to 5 hours.4 All other FDA-cleared Candida diagnostic methods require a positive blood culture. Blood culture misses up to half of infections and often will take 2 to 8 days to become positive.5 Only then can identification be performed. In most cases, a negative result is not confirmed for 5 days after collection and processing of the blood culture.
Faster targeted therapy: Faster time to appropriate therapy has been consistently demonstrated to reduce overall length of stay in the hospital and ICU and results in a savings of $30,000 per patient.6 See how Henry Ford in Michigan and Lee Health in Florida have demonstrated faster targeted therapy for patients in clinical care for more than 24 hours.7,8
