System Overview

Optimize time to targeted therapy for patients with bloodstream infections

Within our Sepsis Solution, VITEK® REVEAL™ offers extensive antimicrobial coverage for gram-negative bloodstream infections delivering phenotypic AST results in an average of 5.5 hours1 directly from positive blood culture to better manage bloodstream infections.

Predicting antimicrobial resistance (AMR), can be more complex and time-intensive for patients with gram-negative infections. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment make a critical difference when it comes to improving sepsis patient outcomes. Hourly delays in antibiotic administration were associated with increased odds of hospital mortality even among patients who received antibiotics within 6 hours.2

Our comprehensive Sepsis Solution, with the addition of VITEK® REVEAL™, helps manage your patient therapy, bringing you rapid and reliable results to support clinical decisions for better patient care.
