Fully integrated technology for predictive diagnosis of sepsis

Project description

Innovative system for sepsis diagnosis

Sepsis (dysregulated immune reaction) can cause rapid multi-organ failure and, with 26 % mortality, is the cause of death for more than 5 million people annually. A common bacteria of Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes can pose a danger despite developments in medicine, as the multiple antibiotic-resistant S. aureus spreads in the community and hospitals. A new, faster and more effective way to detect superantigens with polymerase chain reaction (PCR) of the toxin-coding DNA sequences is needed as existing blood tests are not fast enough. To that end, the EU-funded FIT-SEP project targets developing an affordable, integrated, plug-and-play PCR-based prototype system to rapidly identify infection caused by pathogenic bacteria S. aureus and S. pyogenes, enabling timely and effective treatment.
