Accelerate Diagnostics, Inc. is an in vitro diagnostics company engaged in providing solutions that improve patient outcomes and lower healthcare costs through the diagnosis of serious infections. The Company's technology platform is built to address these challenges by delivering testing of infectious pathogens in various patient sample types. The Company is focused on the development of a rapid diagnostic platform, the Accelerate ID/AST System (ID/AST System or Accelerate ID/AST System), intended for the diagnosis of infectious pathogens. The ID/AST System utilizes genotypic technology to identify (ID) infectious pathogens and phenotypic technology to conduct antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST), which determines whether live bacterial or fungal cells are resistant or susceptible to a particular antibiotic. The ID/AST System features walk-away automation and consists of a fixed instrument and single-use test kit.
