Quality assays support confident decision-making

Sepsis is a life-threatening condition caused by the body’s overreaction to an infection. It affects more than 30 million people around the world each year and results in 6 million deaths. Identifying and treating the condition as early as possible can greatly increase a patient’s likelihood of survival.*
