Hours instead of days

Today’s time-consuming diagnosis of sepsis leads to prolonged patient hospitalization, increased mortality, and an overuse of broad-spectrum antibiotics. Q-linea’s fully automated ASTar™ system cuts the diagnostic time for sepsis and deliver clinically-actionable results in hours instead of days.


Rapid AST directly from blood culture

ASTar™ is a fully automated, “load-and-go”, instrument for Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing (AST), giving a susceptibility profile within three to six hours directly from a positive blood culture. ASTar shortens time to result, enabling early use of antibiotics specifically targeting the disease causing pathogen.


Sepsis – a growing threat to public health

Sepsis is a global health problem, afflicting as many as 30 million people every year. Sepsis is a life-threatening condition, every hour that effective treatment is delayed may have a devastating effect. ASTar will shorten the time to correct antibiotic treatment with more than 24 hours.
