Cepheid proactively developed Xpert Xpress CoV-2/Flu/RSV plus with several enhancements compared to Xpert Xpress SARS-CoV-2/Flu/RSV. Key enhancements include the addition of a third gene target for SARS-CoV-2 (RdRP now included in addition to E and N2), to be more robust against mutations. In addition, on-label transport media options now include eNAT.
Nasopharyngeal swab and anterior nasal swab specimens in 3mL of viral transport media (UTM/VTM), or 2mL of eNAT.
Viral transport media are available from several commercial vendors who may use the terminology VTM (viral transport medium) or UTM (universal transport medium). UTM, VTM, and eNAT are on label.
The listed external controls are Zeptometrix Flu/RSV/SARS-CoV-2 Positive Control (PN: NATFRC-6C) and Negative Control (PN: NATCV9-6C). These are described in the “materials available but not provided” section in the package insert. Please consult with Cepheid’s Technical Support team to inquire about additional commercial options if needed.
Before going live with a new test, a verification study may be necessary. Please follow your laboratory and regulatory requirements when instituting a new test in your laboratory. A verification guide that describes the preparation of contrived positive specimens (prepared by spiking commercial reference material into negative specimens) is available for download on the Product Resources page (Verification Protocol).
In an effort to reduce our environmental footprint, Cepheid is moving towards CD-less products. The package inserts, ADFs and ADF import instructions for the Xpert Xpress CoV-2/Flu/RSV plus are available for download in the Product Resources section. For customers who prefer to obtain the ADFs on a CD, please fill out the CD ADF request using the following link.
