Sepsis is a life-threatening condition that arises when the body’s response to infection damages its own tissues and organs. Sepsis diagnostics today aim to identify the pathogen only and therefore have serious limitations in respect of speed and sensitivity. The Immunexpress SeptiCyte® solution evaluates the host immune response to aid clinicians in quickly and accurately diagnosing sepsis.
About SeptiCyte® Lab
SeptiCyte® Lab quantifies directly from whole blood specific molecular markers from the patient’s own immune system – the “host response.” Immunexpress has validated hundreds of nucleic acid and protein expression biomarkers that, in different combinations, answer specific clinical questions about sepsis. Patented biomarkers, algorithms and analysis methods are used to interpret information about the septic host response.
Immunexpress is a molecular diagnostic company committed to improving outcomes for patients with, or at risk of, sepsis. Immunexpress’s core competency is the clinical validation and commercialization of genomic and proteomic biomarkers and the translation of these novel biomarkers into clinical diagnostic and monitoring assays for readily available platforms, including sample-to-answer platforms. Immunexpress is based in Seattle. For more information visit immunexpress.com.
