What is the Xpert® Test Cartridge?
The cornerstone of the GeneXpert solution is Cepheid’s patented, single-use Xpert test cartridge, in which nucleic acid extraction, amplification, and detection are all self-contained.
Cepheid revolutionized molecular diagnostics with this Lab in a Cartridge™ innovation that enabled sample-to-answer PCR testing. Our iconic blue cartridge lid and foot indicate an industry standard of excellence. Prior, PCR technology was limited to time-consuming manual lab procedures performed by highly-skilled technicians or batch testing on large, complex systems. Cepheid’s growing menu of fast, accurate, and easy-to-use PCR tests gives healthcare professionals access to clinically relevant, on-demand results for a range of disease states, all on one standardized, scalable platform.
