DxNow products and technologies will be initially applied to infection detection in renal dialysis patients and will subsequently address applications in forensics, male fertility, global health and rapid detection of microbial species in the environment to ensure public health and safety. The product related to dialysis, the DxNow Infection Detection System , will be a simple-to-use micro-fluidic device that enables early detection of infection in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients, before the infection has serious health impacts. The system will alert patients and caregivers simultaneously when an infection is detected via easy to use enabling technology that allows for timely clinical intervention reducing the need for costly emergency room visits and hospitalization. DxNow will use mobility and cloud computing to help ensure timely, accurate and effective monitoring for the onset of infection -- critical to reducing costs and improving patient outcomes.
Today there are approximately 300,000 PD patients worldwide and that number is expected to grow to more than 400,000 in the next four years, said
DxNow is providing an innovative solution to a critical problem, reducing the current time of infection detection from days to minutes with greater accuracy, said Dr.
