Delphine Sepsis Panel Test
A novel Delphine Diagnostics product to detect up to 32 different pathogens from human blood culture tests. The pathogens could be bacteria or fungi that causes infection that can be detected in the blood culture test of the patient.
General Information: It must be noted that unlike other diseases or abnormal conditions where a single test can be confirmatory, sepsis testing is a more involved process and currently, no single test can confirm sepsis in a patient. Doctors typically diagnose sepsis after evaluating patient symptoms, history and additional tests which could be blood culture tests, urine or sputum analysis, x-rays and skin tests.
Confirmatory tests are deemed necessary to diagnose sepsis.
If a doctor suspects sepsis, even before it is confirmed, the doctor will usually start treatment immediately with prescribed and/or recommended fluid intake and antibiotics.
