Managing Pediatric Meningitis Faster
Myers notes the “very positive” impact of the BioFire® FilmArray® Meningitis/Encephalitis Panel on pediatric patients—including young children with bacterial meningitis, a condition that can have devastating and lifelong consequences.
Thanks to the BioFire System, Myers describes how “a little girl with Neisseria meningitidis was put on the right antibiotic right away. She was discharged from the hospital three days later. When you can get that result quickly, as a laboratory professional you feel like you’ve done your job well that day. It’s a very rewarding experience.”
