Nanomix launches trial of eLab analyzer and panel
The company's eLab system is a mobile, handheld immunoassay and chemistry diagnostic system designed for rapid point-of-care testing, while the S1 Panel Cartridge was developed to aid in diagnosing critical infections, including sepsis. The panel provides quantitative test results for procalcitonin (PCT), C-reactive protein (CRP), and lactate (LAC) from a single venous whole blood or plasma sample type.

Prenosis gets $4.3M to develop sepsis test for U.S. military
Prenosis has developed an emergency point-of-care (ePOC) system, which builds upon its Immunix platform that uses machine-learning algorithms to identify sepsis as early as possible in hospitals. Now, the platform will be adapted for use on service members on the frontlines by replacing the standard large clinical lab analyzers with a mobile system.

Inflammatix wins $1.7M NIH grant
Using host immune mRNA signatures, the company has identified three sepsis subtypes ("endotypes"). The NIH award will allow Inflammatix to further investigate each endotype's signature and to develop a rapid, 30-minute test to identify them, it said.

Prenosis, Roche expand partnership to combat sepsis
The companies will build on a collaboration they began in 2020. Prenosis will significantly expand its core NOSIS dataset, a large and growing hybrid biomarker-clinical dataset for sepsis care. In addition, the two companies will work together to obtain U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearance for the Prenosis Sepsis Immunoscore and the Roche Elecsys IL-6 assay.

AAD secures BARDA contract for early sepsis detection test
QScout RLD+ can be used in urgent care clinics, doctor's offices, and other nonhospital settings, the company said. It is a rapid hematology analyzer that can describe a seven-part leukocyte differential, including quantifying band neutrophils and other immature granulocytes which can indicate severe infection. Results are available in two minutes compared to the two hours often required by a hospital's testing protocol, according to AAD.

Flu shots may protect against severe COVID-19
The annual flu shot may reduce the risks of stroke, sepsis, and deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in patients with COVID-19. Also, those who received influenza vaccines were significantly less likely to visit emergency departments and be admitted to intensive care units, according to the findings.

CMS continues NTAP for T2's bacteria panel in FY 2021
The extension allows U.S. hospitals treating sepsis patients who are covered by Medicare to remain eligible for an NTAP of $97.50 for the T2Bacteria panel. This payment covers 65% of the average cost of the test panel, which detects pathogens that cause sepsis, for eligible patients, according to the company.

Sphingotec launches point-of-care biomarker test for sepsis, COVID-19
Bio-ADM blood levels reflect in real time the functional status of the endothelium. Endothelial function failure precedes edema and the life-threatening blood pressure drop that causes shock and multiorgan failure -- for instance in sepsis patients. Recent data also show that elevated bio-ADM blood levels identify patients in the general intensive care unit (ICU) patient population who require immediate life-saving therapeutic interventions. Monitoring endothelial function can also help in identifying COVID-19 disease progression.
