SMARTDIAGNOS, rapid detection of sepsis
Sepsis is a potentially fatal immune response to bacterial- and fungal infection in the human body. Early diagnosis is crucial.
SMARTDIAGNOS will achieve 1-3 hours diagnosis time by multiplex technology, decreasing morbidity and mortality up to 20%. The SMARTDIAGNOS project will advance sepsis diagnosis by simplifying clinical sample analysis methods and integrating the currently required numerous steps into a single streamlined device. The system will go beyond the state of the art and achieve shorter time, higher sensitivity (95%), higher selectivity (99%), multiplexing capacity, antimicrobial resistance profiling and automation.
Fast and correct sepsis diagnosis will improve patient outcome and shorten intensive care stays, thus reducing health costs.
