VENUS: Validation of Septic Gene ExpressioN Using SeptiCyte®

The investigators seek to evaluate a new test for determining presence of infection/sepsis as
compared to non-infection/systemic inflammatory response syndrome among critically ill
patients within the first 24 hours of their being hospitalized in an intensive care unit
(ICU) within the first 7 days of hospitalization. The primary purpose of the study is to
validate SeptiCyte® Lab in this population as compared to: 1) the doctor's impression and 2)
existing clinical parameters. The investigators also hope to assess how well a related, new
blood test, SeptID® identifies different types of infection, as compared to cultures and
other lab tests.
