The impact of serial use of PCT* was demonstrated in a health economic model that compared procalcitonin-aided antibiotic stewardship vs. usual care for hospitalized patients.3

* “Serial use of PCT” is defined as use of a PCT-based algorithm to guide the decisions of whether to start antibiotic treatment (LRTI) and when to stop administering antibiotics (LRTI and sepsis).3

Right there in your lab, READY TO SERVE

Deciding in the dark, with less than conclusive data, a physician in your hospital just prescribed a course of antibiotics without the information they need. The danger of that bacterial infection can spread far beyond the patient — it can result in poor patient outcomes, spread to higher costs, infect your institution’s reputation, and add to the growing problem of antibiotic resistance.

By powerfully informing clinical decisions, VITROS® B•R•A•H•M•S PCT brings clarity to both diagnosis and treatment assessment, promoting potential:

  • Improved patient outcomes
  • Significant cost savings
  • Lower rates of antibiotic use
