The iCubate iC-GN Assay™ is a multiplexed, in vitro diagnostic test for the rapid detection and identification of potentially pathogenic gram negative bacteria, which may cause bloodstream infection (BSI). Traditional culture techniques may require 2-4 days to identify both the causative organism and resistance profile, resulting in delayed treatment and increased costs. The iC-GN Assay™ provides bacterial identification and resistance determination from positive blood cultures up to 48 hours faster than conventional methods, improving time to treatment and patient outcomes. The iC-GN Assay™ detects eight of the most common gram negative organisms associated with BSI as well as three clinically significant resistance markers
|Bacterial Genera and Species||Resistance Markers|
