Sustained Customer Results

In addition to clinical study environments, Steripath has repeatedly outperformed traditional blood culture collection methods in emergency departments across the nation.

Customer Testimonials

"Implementing Steripath has dramatically decreased our contamination rates, resulting in savings through reduced length of stay and improved patient outcomes across all four campus emergency departments."  

Mary B., MSN, RN, CEN, Fort Myers, FL

“[Steripath] has helped us to lower our blood culture contamination rates from above 3% on a monthly basis to below the national benchmark for every succeeding month after our initiation of the device. Magnolia provided great resources and training for the system which definitely aided in our success. The majority of the staff like the device and find it rather easy to use after the proper training. We are going to continue to use the device and ride along with Magnolia through this journey of success!”

Jessica P., MSN, RN, CEN, Cape Coral, FL

"The bottom line is that when a culture was drawn without the device (Steripath), we made no progress at all in our contamination rates. The average at the end of 16-weeks was 3%, actually up slightly from where we started. But when the device (Steripath) was used, the contamination rate was 0.7%, which is a 77% improvement in the contamination rate. That is really meaningful progress, and I thank everyone for making it happen!"
