The eGenomics System:

  • Identifies outbreaks before they become endemic
  • Identifies non-outbreaks, allowing hospitals to avoid extreme and costly infection control measures
  • Identifies the source of endemic outbreaks and thus direct infection control efforts
  • Shares "lessons learned" with participating institutions
  • Is faster and more accurate than comparable sub-speciation techniques such as Pulsed Field Gel Electrophoresis (PFGE).
  • Reduces the chance of acquiring a nosocomial infection
  • Reduces antibiotic usage, and thereby extend the effectiveness of existing antibiotics
  • Lowers actual costs to control infections
  • Focuses and directs infection control practices
  • Allows understaffed infection control teams to make infection control decisions based on qualitative data
