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. Hourly delays in antibiotic administration were associated with increased odds of hospital mortality even among patients who received antibiotics within 6 hours.2

The bioMérieux comprehensive Sepsis Solution, with the addition VITEK® 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

VITEK® 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 176 bug drug combinations
  • Allows faster antimicrobial therapy de-escalation to support antimicrobial stewardship

Easily integrated within your lab

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

  • Flexible solution with a modular design to fit any lab
  • Access to bioMérieux’s services from consultancy to installation
  • Fully integrated sepsis solution from blood culture (BACT/ALERT® VIRTUO®), to identification (BIOFIRE® BCID 2 Panel & VITEK® MS  PRIME), AST (VITEK® 2 & VITEK® REVEAL™) and data analysis (MAESTRIA™)
