The IDEM Platform

The most advanced, fully connectable, whole genome sequencing surveillance tool for infectious diseases.

IDEM provides advanced, high definition, natural reference-free analysis of WGS data from bacterial pathogens, with easy-to-interpret results delivered in real clinical time to the clinical teams enabling prompt Infection Prevention interventions.

Compatible with any Illumina sequencer, IDEM delivers fully automated, easy to interpret analysis results within two hours

How it works

Monitoring: Continuous detection of potential outbreaks and transmission events​. 

Benefits

  • No specialist bioinformatics required

  • Identifies previously undetected transmission events

  • Rules out suspected connections

  • Enables detection of transmissions originating in other settings
