About Septest

Founded by a team of experienced diagnostic technologists and advised by leading sepsis experts, we are developing a breakthrough point of need test for sepsis which meets WHO requirements.

Diagnostic Access

Current sepsis diagnostic tests do not integrate well in existing healthcare settings. Our low-cost TRISEP test has been developed to be accessible in any healthcare setting, in any part of the world. 

Guided Treatment

The TRISEP test has been designed to confirm a sepsis diagnosis and guide initial treatment options within minutes in suspected sepsis cases. This will lead to earlier and more effective treatment and reduced antibiotic use.

Meeting diagnostic needs

It has become normal practice to administer broad-spectrum antibiotics immediately following initial clinical diagnosis of sepsis, even before blood tests and cultures confirm the presence of a bacterial infection. 

However, in cases of non-bacterial sepsis, this can lead to unnecessary use of antibiotics (AMR), opportunistic hospital acquired infections and a delay to more appropriate treatment.

This has created a diagnostic need which to this day has failed to be filled by existing point of care tests. This is the diagnostic space that the TRISEP test has been developed to address.

Hospital Settings

The TRISEP test has been designed to confirm emergency treatment options following clinical assessment in suspected sepsis cases.

General Practice

The TRISEP test is well suited for use in G.P Practices to rapidly rule out viruses and other types of infection.

Community Setting

The TRISEP test may be performed by community healthcare providers such as Pharmacists and at local healthcare clinics.

We are determined

We are determined to see our technology in the hands of those who are fighting sepsis on the frontlines, who need rapid access to clinically relevant data to confirm their diagnosis. By implementing the TRISEP test, we believe we can reduce delays to treatment and, most importantly, save lives.
