20 Minute Pathogen ID from Positive Blood Cultures
Rapid, Actionable Information for Identifying Bloodstream Infections
QuickFISH tests are FAST and EASY with a 20-minute turn-around time and 5 minutes of hands-on time. Results can be reported at the same time labs make the critical Gram Stain call. Our proprietary platform of QuickFISH tests have been shown to reduce turn-around time to pathogen identification, decrease length of stay and lower hospital costs.
QuickFISH provides rapid and accurate identification of bacteria and yeast* 1-3 days earlier than conventional identification methods. Conventional methods employ sub-culturing, overnight incubation and phenotypic identification that can take days and lead to empiric therapy coverage with broad-spectrum antibiotics until results become available. With QuickFISH, results are available in just 20 minutes from the positive blood culture, enabling clinicians to optimize patient management.
