“Having a same-shift phenotypic susceptibility test for blood infections could allow life-saving escalations of therapy for this deadly condition.”
- Dr. Laurent Dortet, co-Director of the CRE NRC
SPECIFIC REVEAL RAPID AST SYSTEM
Specific Reveal® Rapid AST system delivers phenotypic AST results in an average of 5 hours, directly from positive blood culture or isolates. Reveal is affordable, high throughput, and provides accurate minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) results with wide antimicrobial coverage.
Results in an average of 5 hours enabling single shift impact vs. three days with conventional AST.
Sample prep averages 2.5 minutes or less, cutting time and costs. No need to separate red blood cells.
Modular, stackable instrument with 17” footprint reduces space requirements & avoids single point of failure.
Pricing at a fraction of alternative rapid AST methods.
“Specific is developing what may be one of most promising and practical new paradigms for increasing the speed to results that has become so critical in cases of drug resistant infection. The combination of low cost, simplicity, and speed of result is exactly what is needed to make an impact.”
— Professor Susan Sharp, PhD, D (ABMM)
Stackable Design Allows for Easy Scaling as Samples Increase
Easily scale from 8 to 32 samples per shift.
Narrow width saves space: Just 20 cm tall x 43 cm wide.
No single point of failure ensures continuous operation.
