“We were pleased to see the Reveal system’s capability to detect and characterize resistance to antimicrobial agents which arises in the French hospital system.”

What is sepsis?
Sepsis is a life-threatening condition that occurs when the body’s response to infection damages its own organs—especially if not recognized early and treated promptly.
Sepsis is the leading cause of death in hospitals.1
1 in 3 patients who dies in a hospital has sepsis.2
Nearly 270,000 Americans die as a result of sepsis.3
Risk of dying increases as much as 8% for every hour treatment is delayed.4
The cost per hospital stay is double the average cost per stay across all other conditions.5
