New performance data for Accelerate Arc to be presented April 25 at ECCMID

Apr 20, 2022

Today we announced the release of new performance data across two studies for the Accelerate Arc module and BC kit at the 32nd European Congress for Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID) located in Lisbon, Portugal 23-26 April 2022.

Two posters featuring performance of the Accelerate Arc System will be presented on Monday April 25th, 12:00- 13:00 hr, Pavilion 3 of the Feira Internacional de Lisboa (FIL).

“The data presented at ECCMID represents an important step in providing a workflow solution to help automate sample preparation for rapid and accurate microbial identification from positive blood cultures,” said Shelley Campeau, PhD, D(ABMM), co-author of the studies and Director of Scientific and Clinical Affairs, Accelerate Diagnostics. “We are pleased to share these abstracts with the clinical microbiology and infectious disease communities to further illustrate the value of this novel technology.”
