University of Strathclyde researchers have developed a new rapid test for earlier diagnosis of SEPSIS.

Research has shown that the device, which has been tested in a laboratory, may be capable of producing results in two and a half minutes, the Biosensors and Bioelectronics journal study suggests. Diagnosing sepsis can be a complex process.
By estimation, 52,000 people in the UK die every year from sepsis, which is a serious complication of an infection.
