Single blood draw detects 1250 pathogens from cell-free DNA

Karius‘s  next-generation sequencing detects fragments of 1250 microbes from a single blood draw.  Identifying microbial cell-free DNA from bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa can facilitate the rapid diagnosis of infectious disease.  Current diagnostics only detect a narrow range of pathogens, and may require invasive biopsies.

This fast and comprehensive analysis could enable more effective, targeted treatment, and the ability to monitor infection in high-risk patients, which will save lives.
