Attend Our Free Virtual Workshop Translating Science into Patient Care: New Results on Early Sepsis Indicator Performance in Real-life Clinical Settings
Sepsis is a complex and severe syndrome associated with a dysregulated immune response against infection, affecting more than 30 million patients worldwide.1 Early detection of sepsis or infection, which may progress to sepsis, is extremely important as it can improve patient outcomes and save money. Our hematology technology with near-native state cellular analysis made it possible to bring a new sepsis biomarker, Early Sepsis Indicator (ESId), to the hematology platform. With this innovation today, the hematology laboratory plays a vital role in rapidly identifying septic patients or those who are at high risk of developing sepsis.
