Beckman Coulter – Early Sepsis Indicator
A first-of-its-kind, hematology-based cellular biomarker, the Early Sepsis Indicator is designed to help emergency department physicians identify patients with sepsis or at risk of developing sepsis.
- Findings are automatically reported as part of a routine complete blood count (CBC) with differential for adult emergency department patients.
- A positive Early Sepsis Indicator result signals a higher probability of sepsis, enabling physicians to initiate lifesaving treatments faster. Compared to reviewing white blood cell count alone, the Early Sepsis Indicator strengthens a clinician’s suspicion of sepsis by 43 percent and, together with clinical signs and symptoms, improves their confidence in helping to rule out sepsis by 63 percent.
