Pioneering Precision Diagnostics for Antibiotic Treatment and Sepsis Care – The Role of Rapid AST
Available on demand

Sepsis affects up to 50 million people annually and is the number one cause of death in hospitals worldwide. Adding to this crisis, the global rise in antibiotic resistance is undermining the ability to effectively combat sepsis. The World Health Organisation has stressed the urgent need for new diagnostic tools to guide appropriate antibiotic treatment and reduce the misuse of antibiotics.

In this webinar, join Dr. Kevin Alby, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Dr. Matthew Faron Medical College Wisconsin and Dr. Christer Malmberg, Gradientech, as they share valuable insights and explore innovative tools that have the potential to transform sepsis management and save countless lives.They will also discuss the latest data on novel rapid antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) solutions, including QuickMIC®, an ultra-rapid AST system delivering MIC values in just 2–4 hours.
