Each year, sepsis affects over 50 million individuals worldwide and accounts for nearly 20% of all fatalities. Additionally, sepsis poses a substantial economic strain, with projected costs exceeding USD 62 billion annually in the U.S. alone. However, rapid diagnosis and treatment could potentially prevent up to 80% of sepsis-related deaths. Now, a breakthrough point-of-care diagnostic platform that leverages the power of the human immune system is poised to address the two main challenges associated with sepsis: broad screening and rapid identification.

Immune Reveal, a first-of-its-kind point-of-care diagnostic platform, is a collaborative creation of Immune IQ (Twin Cities, MN, USA) and Honeywell (Charlotte, NC, USA). This groundbreaking platform integrates automatic disease screening with confirmatory tests to rapidly offer unique insights into various diseases, such as sepsis, heart disease, cancer, and COVID-19. The Immune Reveal platform offers diagnostic information quicker and more cost-effectively than ever before. With one of the most powerful data sets in the industry and the incorporation of artificial intelligence within its system, Immune Reveal could redefine the standard of care in diagnosis and treatment.

Immune Reveal generates one of the industry's most powerful data sets, which, when translated by artificial intelligence, can " read " diseases that a patient's immune system has detected even before the appearance of symptoms. This game-changing approach paves the way for a new era of integrated tests that can perform disease screening, confirmation testing, and precision treatment testing in minutes using the same card and sample. Immune IQ plans to commercialize sepsis detection as the initial test on the Immune Reveal platform. A recent clinical study successfully showcased Immune Reveal's ability to consistently generate a large cellular dataset. The combination of this data has been independently demonstrated in peer-reviewed publications to yield highly accurate sepsis detection.

"The human immune system is widely recognized as a near-perfect tool for detecting disease, even far in advance of noticeable symptoms. Immune Reveal is the first platform that can both read and decode the immune system's data in as soon as five minutes," said Immune IQ founder and CEO, David Deetz.
