Accelerate Diagnostics is an in-vitro diagnostics company dedicated to providing solutions for the global challenge of antibiotic resistance and Healthcare Associated Infections. The company’s fully automated ID/AST system, helps you to move your patients from empiric to optimal therapy faster using MIC results from the Accelerate Pheno™ system. Powered by Morphokinetic Cellular Analysis
(MCA), the Accelerate Pheno™ system is the first to track phenotypic features such as the size, shape, and division rate of individual live cells growing into micro-colonies while being challenged by antimicrobials. The Accelerate PhenoTest™ BC Kit makes earlier optimal therapy possible by providing answers, directly from positive blood cultures, that drive treatment decisions 1-2 days faster than current methods allow today. Earlier optimal therapy can lead to reduced cost of patient care, fewer adverse incidents, lower
rate of resistance, and better clinical outcomes.
