AdvanDx tests offer early identification of bacteria and yeast directly from patients’ positive blood cultures. Conventional ID methods can take up to 72 hours—but QuickFISH and PNA FISH tests can be turned around rapidly, with QuickFISH in as little as 20 minutes. Result: shorter length of stay for patients and lower hospital costs, while avoiding the need for broad-spectrum antibiotics.
About the Technology
Both tests use our proprietary Peptide Nucleic Acid Fluorescence in Situ Hybridization (PNA FISH) technology, allowing quick and accurate bacterial and fungal pathogen identification in positive blood cultures.
