    MRSA is an evolving threat that requires uncompromising solutions

    • Every year, new strains emerge and threaten to erode recent hard-fought gains in HAI prevention2
    • Active surveillance is proven to help reduce HAI rates,3 but sensitivity and speed are essential4
    • Effective infection control programs require an on-demand test that meets clinician and laboratory needs

    The #1 on-demand test for MRSA colonization is now improved

    • Expanded coverage demonstrated using an extensive library of over 195 MRSA strains from around the world5
    • Updated primers detect both mecA and mecC strains and reduce false-positive results due to “empty cassettes”5
    • Validated for use with both rayon swabs and ESwab™ (Copan)5

    Xpert MRSA NxG is an accurate, on-demand PCR test that provides actionable results in about an hour.

    Shift your lab from reactive to proactive

     

    • Quickly identify MRSA-colonized patients who require contact precautions to reduce the risk of transmission and avoid costly outbreaks
    • Improve overall patient safety by reducing the risk of MRSA infection

    The results

    Studies have shown that MRSA screening programs using on-demand molecular tests contribute to:

    • Decreased MRSA infection rates in the ICU by 62%6
    • Reduced isolation days by 44%4
    • Decreased overall hospital costs4
