  • Infectious complications in immunocompromised patients and critically ill patients represent a serious clinical problem. In these individuals, not only common nosocomial agents but also very unusual pathogens, pathogens with specific cultivation demands or fastidious pathogens can be identified. Timely information on the causative agents is highly important for rapid and accurate clinical decision-making and targeted pharmacotherapy.
