More Accurate Detection of Sepsis

Sepsis is one of the most dreaded hospital-spawned conditions: It’s common and can quickly be fatal. According to Dr. Rolland Carlson, CEO of Immunexpress, a sepsis diagnosis often takes 24 hours—far too long for many patients.

Immunexpress offers a test called SeptiCyte that quickly and accurately indicates the risk of sepsis by measuring RNA from white blood cells. The device can turn around a test within one hour. The SeptiCyte cartridge fits in the hand, running on a nearby patient testing platform, and operates at room temperature instead of needing clean rooms and refrigeration (Figure 1).
