QuickFISH provides rapid and accurate identification of bacteria and yeast 1-3 days earlier than conventional identification methods. Conventional methods employ sub culturing, overnight incubation and phenotypic identification that can take days and lead to empiric therapy coverage with broad-spectrum antibiotics until results become available. With QuickFISH, results are available in just 20 minutes from the positive blood culture, enabling clinicians to optimize antibiotic therapy sooner.
