Magicplex™ Sepsis Real-time Test

Detection of Sepsis-causing Pathogens

  • Real time
  • CE IVD


Magicplex™ Sepsis Real-time Test screens for more than 90 pathogens which cover over 90%1),2),3) of sepsis-causing pathogens from whole blood samples within 3 hrs (exclude extraction time).

Sepsis, systemic inflammatory response syndrome, is known as top 10 disease with high mortality in the United States. Specially, it may lead to fatal consequences such as shock, organ failure, death to ICU patients, children, elderly, and post-surgery patients with weak immune system. Early diagnosis and treatment are important for fast-paced sepsis progress. Treatment should not be delayed as statistics suggest that as high as an 8% of mortality rate increases per hour if antibiotics are delayed in severe sepsis cases.

However, Magicplex™ Sepsis Real-time Test screens pathogens as well as tests for methicillin and vancomycin resistance within 3 hrs (after extraction). Also, this test is able to further identify the pathogens which are detected in the previous screening step with an additional 30 min.
