Is there anything you would like to make delegates aware of ahead of the Managing Deteriorating Conditions Conference on 12th October?
Rushana Hussian, Clinical Scientist at the Microbiology Department, Royal Bolton Hospital Foundation Trust, will present on the analysis of patient management and time to result of the Bruker MALDI Biotyper and Sepsityper Diagnostic Tools, compared to standard laboratory protocol, in patients admitted from the accident and emergency department with septicaemia at the Bruker workshop at 1.30pm
What do you feel are the key points delegates need to digest when considering a partnership with your organisation?
MALDI-TOF MS has transformed the routine diagnostic workflow in clinical microbiology laboratories, by rapidly identifying microorganisms down to the species level, directly from positive blood cultures. Traditional biochemical methods are incredibly time-consuming due to the subculturing step prior to identification. MALDI-TOF MS is capable of reducing turn-around times by up to 48 hours, by replacing the time-consuming subculturing combined with biochemical tests with direct and rapid identification from the positive blood cultures.
Bruker’s IVD-CE MALDI Biotyper® (MBT), used in conjunction with the MBT Sepsityper® IVD Kit, can identify pathogens from positive blood cultures within 15-20 minutes, in a cost-effective, efficient workflow that can improve patient care.
