Sepsis is the body's overwhelming response to infection, which can lead to tissue damage, organ failure, and death. It is a leading cause of death in the United States.
Time to a diagnosis of sepsis is critical. Treatment within the first hour of detection translates to approximately 80% survival, while each hour of delay increases mortality rate by 8%. Current tests for sepsis can take hours to days to provide answers, are costly, and require the use of multiple instruments that are most often operated by skilled technicians within a central hospital laboratory.
The Nanōmix sepsis panel incorporates enzymatic and immuno-assays for three key sepsis markers. The test is performed in approximately 10 minutes and can be used at the first point of contact between a patient and the healthcare provider.
Nanōmix provides needed information to the physician for use in diagnosing sepsis within the 30 minute critical clinical window for decisions about care.
