Sepsis management

Predicting antimicrobial resistance (AMR), can be more complex and time-intensive for patients with Gram negative infections.

Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment make a critical difference when it comes to improving sepsis patient outcomes. Indeed, chances of survival go down drastically the longer initiation of treatment is delayed. If a patient receives antimicrobial therapy within the first hour of diagnosis, chances of survival are close to 80%; this goes down by 7.6% for every hour after2. Yet, if a patient initially receives inappropriate antimicrobial treatment, they are five times less likely to survive3.

The bioMérieux comprehensive Sepsis Solution, with the addition SPECIFIC REVEAL™, helps to manage your patient therapy all along the pathway bringing you rapid and reliable results to support clinical decisions for better patient care.

Rapid & accurate results direct from blood culture

SPECIFIC REVEAL™ utilizes Small Molecule Sensors that detects the volatiles released by microorganisms as they grow to quantify antibiotic efficacy. Sensor color changes report growth monitored every 10 minutes, allowing the rapid phenotypic identification of growth or its absence and the associated Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) determination to be made.

  • Real-time monitoring of MIC results
  • Up to 23 antimicrobials in the European panel
  • Actionable results with MIC and susceptibility category S, I, R

Easily integrated within your lab

Adding SPECIFIC REVEAL™ to your bioMérieux Sepsis Solution offers you the fastest route to fully actionable results and support therapy decisions for improved patient outcomes.

  • Flexible solution with a modular design to fit any lab activity
  • For a fully integrated sepsis solution from blood culture with BACT/ALERT® VIRTUO®, identification with BIOFIRE® Blood Culture Identification 2 panel & VITEK® MS  PRIME, AST with VITEK® 2 and SPECIFIC REVEAL™ & data analysis with MYLA®
  • bioMérieux is by your side from installation to integration to daily operations to help you get the most of your solution
