Sensitive and quantitative monitoring of BCR-ABL mRNA in patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML)
New Ways. New Innovations. New Paths Towards Disease Management.
Cancer is Hard. Testing for it Shouldn’t Be.
Cepheid’s innovative oncology program offers a growing menu of molecular diagnostic tests that currently focus on cancers of the breast, bladder, and blood. Harnessing the power of quantitative PCR technology and the world’s most popular molecular diagnostics platform1, Cepheid oncology products provide on-site, on-demand, standardized, and reliable results.
With Cepheid’s proven “lab in a cartridge,” our tests give patients and their doctors peace of mind when it matters most. The pioneering mindset of our oncology team is bolstered by Cepheid’s strong molecular biology capabilities, extensive global infrastructure, and an unwavering commitment to scientific rigor.

Xpert® Bladder Cancer Detection3 & Xpert® Bladder Cancer Monitor3
Xpert Bladder Cancer Detection and Xpert Bladder Cancer Monitor* are two easy to use, non-invasive bladder cancer tests. Xpert Bladder Cancer Detection* is intended to detect the presence of bladder cancer in patients with hematuria. Xpert Bladder Cancer Monitor* is indicated as an aid to standard clinical evaluation in monitoring for bladder cancer recurrence in patients previously diagnosed with bladder cancer. Both tests measure five bladder cancer- specific biomarkers and require only a urine sample from the patient.

Xpert FII & FV Product Brochure
30 Minute Test for Genetic Risk of Thrombosis Xpert® FII & FV is a qualitative genotyping test for the rapid detection of Factor II (FII) and Factor V (FV) alleles. Performed on the Cepheid GeneXpert System, the test is intended to provide rapid results for FII (G20210A) and FV Leiden (G1691A) mutations as an aid in the diagnosis of suspected thrombophilia.
Partnering with The Max Foundation
Our BCR-ABL test is playing a pivotal role in Cepheid’s vision of making molecular testing accessible to patients everywhere. In 2012, Cepheid partnered with The Max Foundation, an organization that channels humanitarian donations of life-saving oncology products to underserved populations in countries where those products are not locally available.
Through this collaboration of shared values, Cepheid offers compassion pricing of its GeneXpert instruments and Xpert BCR-ABL test for CML patients in specified low- and middle-income countries. Cepheid is also a proud sponsor of the Max Foundation initiative, My PCR, a patient driven program with the mission of educating all CML patients about the importance of monitoring their treatment with PCR testing.
Journey Inside the Cepheid GeneXpert® Cartridge
Prior to Cepheid, the industry was set on two things: batch testing and the idea of a simple test disposable running on a large, complex system. Cepheid changed all that with the first random access system – enabling tests to be run ‘on-demand’ instead of in large batches. Cepheid further improved accessibility by taking much of the complexity out of the system and putting it into a patented, self-contained, single use cartridge. Sample extraction, amplification and detection are all carried out within this ‘laboratory in a cartridge’. Take a tour inside this amazing technology:
