QuickFISH Equipment


In contrast to many other platform technologies used to identify bacteria and yeasts from patient samples, QuickFISH requires no complex or expensive instrumentation. The equipment you would need to purchase to use QuickFISH consists of a slide station, microscope filter, mixing template and pipette. These are available to purchase individually, or as part of a convenient starter kit. The QuickFISH Starter System requires a minimal initial capital investment and includes all materials and equipment, except QuickFISH BC kits and QuickFISH Fixation kits, necessary to perform the QuickFISH assay.

The QuickFISH Starter system (ST004) can be ordered as a complete system and contains the components listed below. These are also available to order individually if required. For a complete set of equipment and accessories required, please download the flyer using the green button below.

About Sepsis Diagnostics

Sepsis is a potentially life-threatening condition caused by the presence of micro-organisms such as bacteria (bacteraemia) and fungi (fungaemia) in the bloodstream. Disease progression can be rapid so effective clinical intervention in these cases requires prompt diagnosis and identification of the responsible pathogen.

The QuickFISH system offers unprecedentedly fast (20 minute) species identification of pathogens directly from positive blood cultures, allowing the reporting of pathogen identification at the same time as the reporting of Gram stain results. Implementation of QuickFISH for sepsis diagnostics can deliver

  • Improved patient outcomes
  • Decreased financial outlay
  • Optimised antibiotic use
  • Decreased patient length of stay
