Sepsis Awareness Month
Our team at Immunexpress is dedicated to bringing rapid sepsis diagnostics to market quickly. We hope to do our part to bring awareness to this devastating disease, especially during Sepsis Awareness Month (September 2020).

Pediatric Sepsis Week
During Pediatric Sepsis Week (April 19-25, 2020), Immunexpress downloaded and distributed “The Bug” coloring sheets from the Sepsis Alliance. Our children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews enjoyed themselves coloring and learned about infections during “Stay At Home” time.
