“Gradientech’s groundbreaking QuickMIC® system is addressing crucial needs in clinical diagnostics with its speed and precision holding an immense promise for elevating antibiotic susceptibility testing to new heights, truly contributing to the advancement of next-generation diagnostics and personalised medicine.

The QuickMIC system’s ultra-rapid and precise AST results enable sepsis patients to receive specific personalised guidance of the right antibiotic and the right dose in record time. The modular design offers affordable scaling possibilities, making QuickMIC attractive to both small and large hospital laboratories. QuickMIC and its Gram-negative panel are CE marked and commercially available in Europe but not yet available for sale in the United States.
