MRSA/SA BLOOD CULTURE CE IVD

Staphylococcus aureus is a leading cause of hospital-acquired bloodstream infections. The critical treatment challenge is the extended time it takes to accurately identify the cause of sepsis. It has been reported that each hour of delay in the administration of an effective antimicrobial theraphy results in mean decrease of 8% in patient survival (Kumar A et al. Crit Care med 2006;34:1589-1596).

GenomEra CDX™ SA/MRSA Blood Culuture test detects the presence of S. aureus (SA) and methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) in gram positive blood culture bottles in 50 min and enables clinicians to optimize therapy two or more days faster and save time of starting acute lifesaving therapy.
