Timing is everything
for some patients

Accelerate PhenoTest™ BC Kit –

A recent customer study showed the system provided identification and susceptibility results with MICs an average of 42 hours faster than their standard of care.*

The Accelerate PhenoTest™ BC Kit makes earlier optimal therapy possible by providing answers, directly from positive blood cultures, that drive treatment decisions 1-2 days faster than current methods allow today.

Earlier optimal therapy can lead to reduced cost of patient care, fewer adverse incidents, lower rate of resistance, and better clinical outcomes.

Clinical relevancy

Timely escalation to effective therapy reduces mortality

Impact of Time to Definitive Therapy on Mortality4
Empiric therapy may not be adequate in up to 25% of patients with bloodstream infections (BSIs).4 Shortening the time horizon from empiric to optimal therapy requires susceptibility results with the MIC for 52% of patients with BSIs.5

Timely escalation to effective therapy reduces hospital length of stay

Impact of Effectiveness of Antibiotic on Hospital Length of Stay (Gram-negative sepsis)6
Reducing hospital length of stay (LOS) by two days reduces broad spectrum antibiotic exposure that may increase the risk of HAIs, C. difficile infection, and increase risk of community-acquired resistance. It also substantially reduces cost of care.

De-escalation can improve patient outcomes

% CDI Incidence by Number of Simultaneous Drug Classes Administered

Reducing the time frame from empiric broad-spectrum antibiotic coverage to optimal therapy has been shown to dramatically reduce the incidence of C. difficile in patients with BSIs.7

Reporting antimicrobial susceptibility results 1-2 days faster gives clinicians the data required to move to targeted optimal therapy faster.
