Xpert C. difficile
  • Rapid and Accurate. It’s about time.

    The alarming rise in the incidence of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) highlights the need for rapid and accurate diagnostic solutions. Today’s testing methodologies have forced clinicians to choose between solutions that deliver either speed or accuracy.

    Xpert® C. difficile delivers both.

    The alarming rise in the incidence of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) highlights the need for rapid and accurate diagnostic solutions:

    • Sensitivity of current available rapid diagnostic tests are unacceptably low1
    • Additional length of stay increase caused by C. difficile infection is 5.6 days1
    • Incremental costs due to C. difficile infection can be as high as $7,1791 per patient

    Management of CDI requires rapid and accurate diagnosis. Cepheid’s Xpert C. difficile delivers both while enabling clinicians to optimize patient management and reduce length of stay.
