An interesting programme attracted a big audience on a saturdy.
Dr. Michael Wilke our CEO presented the 9-month results of the PHENOMENON Project, where the benefit of rapid bacterial ID and AST in a clinical routine setting is evaluated.
To data over 140 positive blood cultures from two ICUs have been processed with the system. Besides a time gain of 2.6 days (61.5hrs) the results lead to therapy optimization recommendations in 41% of the patients. Among those adjustments due to resistance and de-escalation were the most frequent.
In August the 1-year evaluation will be perfomed. It will also contain an economic evaluation.
