Recent Breakthrough in Sepsis Pathogen ID: Same-Day Results with T2Direct Diagnostics Enables Faster Targeted Therapy in Educational Webinar

Share Article

Same-day results may halt bloodstream infections from progressing to sepsis. In this free webinar, which LabRoots will host June 20, attendees can earn continuing education credits while learning how to integrate direct from whole blood diagnostics into routine clinical care and sepsis management protocols and also demonstrate the potential for these diagnostics to improve outcomes for patients suspected of sepsis while improving stewardship.

Cornelius J. Clancy, MD Associate Professor of Medicine, Infectious Diseases Division and Director, Mycology Program, University of Pittsburgh

Sepsis is one of the top challenges facing hospitals in terms of high mortality rates, poor clinical outcomes and high cost of care. One of the major hurdles to effective sepsis management is the limitations of conventional diagnostics, which rely on blood culture and take 1 to 5 or more days to identify sepsis-causing pathogens.

To advance sepsis care, hospitals are turning to T2MR®, a proven technology that does not rely on blood culture for results and has exquisite accuracy. This year, multiple new peer-reviewed studies have been published on the T2Candida® Panel and the recently FDA-cleared T2Bacteria® Panel, which provide sepsis pathogen ID results in 3 to 5 hours without the wait for blood culture, and potentially allowing for treatment on Day 0. Due to improved detection, these studies from the U.S. and EU demonstrate that clinicians are achieving faster-targeted therapy, better outcomes, enhanced stewardship, and reduced cost of care.

Dr. Cornelius J. Clancy, an associate professor of medicine at the University of Pittsburgh, will be the speaker for this event. Clancy received his doctorate of medicine from the University of Washington. Along with his associate professor role, he is the director of the Mycology Program at the university and is the chief of the Infectious Diseases Section at the VA Pittsburgh Health Care System.

LabRoots will host the webinar June 20, 2018, beginning at 7 a.m. PDT, 10 a.m. EDT. To learn more or to register, click here.
