Septicemia is a serious illness wherein a patient develops symptoms due to the presence of bacteria or toxins in blood. At iGenetic, we recognise the importance of timely differential diagnosis between sepsis and the potentially life threatening SIRS syndrome that results from infection. The Septicemia Panel of iGenetic provides detection, identification of pathogen, sensitivity and resistance by two independent and orthogonal technologies
Our Septicemia offering is the one and only panel of its kind which is commercially available in India. iGenetic's Septicemia panel provides a diagnosis of Septicemia within 24 hrs. The detection and identification of the pathogen is also reported within 24 hrs. The Septicemia panel screens for 16 bacterial and 2 fungal pathogens in a multiplex PCR assay having high sensitivity. The assay rapidly screens samples for several pathogens so as to reduce the turn-around time and this rapid diagnosis saves patients lives. This technology also removes the sporadic false negativity resulted by blood culture.
