What is Sepsis

According to the CDC, sepsis occurs when an infection triggers an extreme (dysregulated) immune response.

It is a life-threatening medical emergency.

Without timely treatment, sepsis can rapidly lead to tissue damage, organ failure, and death.

The presence of a blood stream infection is commonly used to diagnose sepsis.

Current Diagnostic Limitations


Blood culture sensitivity varies widely (55-65%) with false negative and positive results commonly reported.

Time to Result

Blood culture typically takes 1-3 days to return a result.


Newer molecular diagnostic approaches can deliver a result in 3-5 hours, but the tests are complex and must be performed by experts in a central lab facility.


SepTec™ is our lead platform that takes advantage of our patented sensor technology.

This offers significant benefits over traditional diagnostic approaches and helps tackle the global issue of sepsis.  


15 minutes diagnosis.

Point of Care

Information available to clinician when & where it’s needed.

Significant Savings

Significant savings in treatment costs.

Pathogen Classification

Enables immediate targeted treatment (gram positive/negative, fungal).

Reduced Mortality

Earlier intervention with appropriate treatment will decrease sepsis mortality rates.

Reduced Antibiotic Usage

Reduced reliance on broad spectrum antibiotic treatment which can contribute to the growing problem of anti-microbial resistance.

Our technology can help rapidly diagnose and characterise blood stream infections
