About T2Bacteria Panel
The T2Bacteria Panel is the only FDA-cleared diagnostic test able to detect sepsis-causing bacterial pathogens directly from whole blood, in 3 to 5 hours, without the need to wait days for a positive blood culture. The T2Bacteria Panel runs on the fully-automated T2Dx Instrument and simultaneously detects five bacteria species, including E. faecium, S. aureus, K. pneumoniae, P. aeruginosa, and E. coli, and the CE marked version detects the aforementioned pathogens plus A. baumannii. Rapid detection of these pathogens is essential to getting infected patients on appropriate antibiotic therapy and improving clinical outcomes.
