A simple blood test for accurately distinguishing between bacterial and viral infection
What is MeMed BV™?
A simple blood test
MeMed BV™ is a pioneering blood test to help physicians with the seemingly simple clinical dilemma - does a patient have a bacterial or viral infection. The test harnesses the power of the world's most accurate detection system, crafted by nature - the body’s immune system. MeMed BV™ measures and computationally integrates the levels of three immune system proteins: TRAIL, IP-10 and CRP.
High quality independent double-blind clinical validation
MeMed BV™ is the only test for distinguishing bacterial from viral infections that has been validated in multinational, double-blind and external clinical studies. The clinical studies demonstrating the diagnostic performance of MeMed BV™ encompassed thousands of patients and are published in high impact medical journals.
Why MeMed BV™?
The advantages of listening to the immune response
Unlike most conventional solutions that seek to detect bacteria or viruses, MeMed BV™ uses the human immune system as the disease sensor. This approach offers unique advantages far beyond speed and accuracy: (i) It can diagnose cases when the infection site is not readily accessible or is unknown (e.g., pneumonia or fever without source) because immune markers circulate throughout the body; (ii) It can prevent false alarms due to detection of bacteria or viruses that are mere bystanders and are not causing the disease; (iii) It is robust to rapidly evolving pathogens.
How is MeMed BV™
1st generation kit available in ELISA format
MeMed BV™ is available today as an ELISA kit called ImmunoXpert™, which runs in two hours and is suitable for central lab settings. ImmunoXpert™ is approved for clinical use in the EU, Switzerland (CE-IVD), and Israel, and is available as part of our Early Access Program in select medical centers. The test is not intended for use as a standalone diagnostic tool, and should be used in conjunction with other clinical and laboratory findings.
It is currently not available for sale in the US.
