Be a Part of Our Game-Changing Team

Over a decade ago, Cepheid set the standard for innovation in automated molecular diagnostics with our first system. We have never looked back. Our product is the most versatile molecular diagnostic solution on the market. Not only are our Xpert® tests among the most accurate, they are also fast and easy. So easy, that anyone, in almost any setting, can benefit from our test results.

Whether testing for tuberculosis in a mobile clinic in Botswana, for CT/NG and GBS in an OB/GYN practice in Madrid, or for a broad range of healthcare associated infections (HAI) in a hospital lab in New York City, Cepheid is positively impacting the quality of patient care — even saving lives — every day.
