FebriDx® Infection Testing

FebriDx® Infection Testing 2017-11-08T09:03:57+00:00

FebriDx® is the first and only rapid, point of care test that uses a capillary blood sample to identify and differentiate a clinically significant immune response to viral and/or bacterial acute febrile respiratory infection. The FebriDx® test detects elevated levels of Myxovirus resistance A (MxA) – a derivative of interferon that becomes elevated in the presence of acute viral infection, and C-reactive protein (CRP) – an acute phase protein that is elevated in the presence of bacterial infection.

The FebriDx® test can be used to help triage infectious patients at the point of care, providing clinicians with a clear path to diagnosis and treatment, leading to more efficacious healthcare decisions. Test results are available in as soon as 15 minutes, allowing a treatment plan to be established during the patient’s initial surgery visit.

Right diagnosis

  • Identify & triage patients suffering from a clinically significant ARI
  • Differentiate viral from bacterial infectious aetiology
  • Identify the need for pathogen-specific testing

Right treatment

  • Empower GPs to make targeted immune response-directed therapeutic decisions at the point of care
  • Reduce unnecessary antibiotic prescriptions and the possibility of antibiotic resistance, allergies and toxicities, and adverse events
  • Improve patient satisfaction by reducing healthcare costs associated with misdiagnosis, repeat visits, and mistreatment

Right now

  • Results in as soon as 15 minutes
  • Single use, disposable test
  • Provide optimal patient management during the initial consultation
