Antimicrobial Stewardship

How important is it to have the RIGHT results?

AMR leads to increased mortality and higher medical costs

2.8 Million The annual number of AMR infections in the US1
$4.6 Billion The estimated annual cost to treat six multi-drug resistant germs in the US1
35,000 The annual number of deaths in the U.S caused by AMR1

Health Systems

How would the RIGHT results impact patient satisfaction?

Patient satisfaction impacts loyalty, revenue, and clinical outcomes.1-3

Standardize PCR testing throughout your care continuum to provide patients with the quality they deserve no matter where and when they seek care.

Pediatrics

How would the RIGHT results the first time impact your patients?

Children with acute respiratory infection:

27 of 100 have bacterial infections1
57 of 100 are treated with antimicrobials1
11.4M preventable antimicrobial prescriptions annually (US)1

Primary Care

How would the RIGHT results impact your patients?

RT-PCR Tests vs. Rapid Influenza Diagnostic Tests (RIDTs). PCR has higher sensitivity: >90% vs. 50-70%1
PCR can detect Infection beyond 72 hours of illness onset2
PCR provides better coverage of mutations of the Flu & SARS-COV-2 virus – the test you choose impacts your clinical decisions

The flu test you choose impacts your clinical decisions

Student Health Centers

How could students safety and parents anxiety be improved with access to the RIGHT results?

There are two common types of tests available for respiratory testing. Both provide results quickly, however there are differences.

Rapid Influenza Diagnostic Tests (RIDTs)1

Detect viral surface proteins, limiting detection of seasonal mutations of the Flu virus

Low to moderate sensitivity — 50–70% chance of result being correct

False negative results are common, leading to misuse of antimicrobial therapy and unnecessary medical interventions3

Rapid Molecular Tests2

Detect viral RNA, enabling better coverage of seasonal mutations of the Flu virus

High sensitivity — >90% chance of result being correct

Lower likelihood of false negative results
