Sepsis and other severe infections are mainly caused by bacteria or fungi. Early identification of the causative pathogen is crucial for effective and successful treatment with antibiotics, antimycotics, supporting medication and other treatments.
Cube Dx molecular pathogen tests support microbiologists and infectious disease clinicians in providing very early indication of a pathogen in whole blood and other sample types. This is particularly relevant for microorganisms that have been weakened by antimicrobial treatment or which demonstrate slow growth in or on microbiological nutrient media. The multiplex technology employed in Cube Dx is ideally suited to allow for identification in parallel of a wide spectrum of possible pathogens.
