Irish doctors have developed a revolutionary medical device which speeds up the diagnosis of sepsis


A team of Finglas doctors has developed a revolutionary medical device which can massively speed up the diagnosis of sepsis and save people from the illness which can kill in just hours. Patients who are currently suspected of having sepsis have to undergo a lengthy blood analysis which can take days to complete, and while they are waiting for a result they are put on a broad-spectrum antibiotic. But the simple SepTec screening tool can be used at the patient’s bedside to diagnose sepsis in just 15 minutes from a blood sample and lead to the use of a very specific medication for that patient’s needs.
