The T2Candida Panel was cleared for marketing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in September 2014 for the detection of sepsis causing Candida. T2Candida Panel performance was established in adult subjects. T2Candida Panel performance in neonates, infants, and pediatric patients has not been established.
