Rapid diagnosis of infectious diseases can make the difference between life and death in hospitals, but the wait for results from standard hospital in-house laboratory tests may take days. STAT-Diagnostica & Innovation SL’s self-contained mini-lab is not only portable and can be administered easily by a nurse, but it also allows for a short, 30-minute turnaround time from taking a patient specimen to identifying one of roughly 50 specific pathogens associated mainly with infectious diseases.
