bioMérieux to Feature Sepsis Solutions at New York Meeting of the American Society of Microbiology
Date:4/5/2013

vere sepsis costs in excess of $20,000 to treat per patient – putting it on par with heart attacks and other acute care conditions.3 Sepsis patients typically require nearly 20 days of hospitalization.

bioMérieux is the maker of the VIDAS® B.R.A.H.M.S. PCT (procalcitonin) assay, cleared by the FDA in 2007. This test of high medical value for clinicians is intended to aid in the risk assessment of critically ill patients on their first day of ICU admission for progression to severe sepsis and septic shock.

PCT is a natural human protein that is released into the bloodstream when there is a severe bacterial infection – the leading underlying cause of sepsis. The bioMérieux VIDAS PCT assay is a 20-minute test that measures PCT levels and helps doctors assess the risk of sepsis in a patient early in the course of the condition before severe damage occurs.
