About Us

At Septest, we are committed to transforming sepsis diagnosis with innovative technology that ensures early detection and appropriate treatment.

Founded by a sepsis survivor and diagnostic specialist, Septest has partnered with prominent sepsis experts and global organisations to produce a range of breakthrough point-of-need tests that can be implemented in any setting, worldwide.  

Global Burden

Sepsis is a life-threatening illness caused by the body's response to an infection, resulting in systemic inflammation and organ dysfunction. It can affect anybody, from infants to the elderly, and progresses rapidly if not diagnosed and treated promptly. 

Recognised as a global health crisis, sepsis affects an estimated 48.9 million people annually resulting in over 11 million deaths worldwide. In addition to the human toll, sepsis has a significant economic impact, with healthcare costs estimated to be in the billions of dollars every year.

Diagnostic Need

Early diagnosis of sepsis is critical, with every hour delay in treatment increasing the risk of death by 8-10%. Despite this urgency, current diagnostic methods are often time-consuming, expensive, and unavailable at the point-of-need. Septest's rapid tests intend to bridge this gap by providing simple, low-cost solutions that integrate seamlessly into any healthcare setting, ensuring timely and effective treatment for sepsis patients worldwide.

Antimicrobial Resistance

The overuse of antibiotics in cases of non-bacterial sepsis has contributed to the rise of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), posing a significant challenge to sepsis management. This not only puts a strain on healthcare budgets, but it also makes it increasingly difficult to treat infections effectively. Septest seeks to tackle sepsis and AMR collectively by providing healthcare professionals with the tools they need to accurately diagnose sepsis and prescribe antimicrobials only when necessary. 

Diagnostic Integration

Hospital Settings

Septest's diagnostic tests have been designed to confirm emergency treatment options following clinical assessment in suspected sepsis cases.

General Practice

Septest test solutions are well suited for use in GP practices to rapidly rule out viruses and other types of infection.

Community Setting

All Septest diagnostic tests may be performed by community health care providers such as pharmacists and at local healthcare clinics.

Our Focus

We are determined to see our technology in the hands of those who are fighting sepsis on the front lines.

Our ultra-accessible point-of-need tests have been specifically designed to reduce normal barriers to diagnostic access, especially in LMIC's.

By implementing our range of diagnostic test solutions, we believe we can reduce delays to diagnosis, treatment and, most importantly, save lives.
