Clinically actionable AST

QuickMIC® is designed to help clinicians make more informed treatment decisions on antibiotic selection and dosage for improved sepsis patient outcomes.

Accurate & reliable MIC

QuickMIC delivers high accuracy MICs with unprecedented precision. Low variability results in 2-4 hours means ultra-rapid AST you can trust.

Fight antibiotic resistance

Targeted treatment of sepsis patient reduces unnecessary antibiotic use and limit the threat of antibiotic resistance.

Start small, scale up later

Simple installation, easy-to-use software and a small foot-print, ensures it’s easy to get started. The award-winning, modular design allows patient-near laboratories to stack up to 12 instruments for increased capacity.

Convenient patient-centric panels

Single-use cassettes offer fast and convenient patient-centric panels, each containing 12 antibiotics. High resolution around clinical breakpoints ensure clinically relevant results.
