Sepsis and septic shock are associated with high morbidity and mortality and place a large burden upon healthcare resources throughout the world.
With increasing challenges due to antimicrobial resistance, it is more important than ever for hospitals to accurately and rapidly diagnose and treat septic patients.
Blood cultures remain the gold standard in the microbiological diagnosis of sepsis. Therefore, a superior (most sensitive, specific and rapid) blood culture system and media type(s) gives microbiologists and clinicians the best microbiological information to pick the most effective treatment options, positively influencing patient outcomes and hospital spending.
