Xpert® Xpress SARS-CoV-2

Actionable rapid respiratory results to meet the challenges of the ongoing pandemic.

Xpert<sup>®</sup> Xpress SARS-CoV-2

Cepheid has developed an automated molecular test for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The test leverages the design principles of our current Xpert® Xpress Flu/RSV cartridge technology, in which multiple regions of the viral genome are targeted. The test can provide rapid detection of the current pandemic coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 in approximately 45 minutes with less than a minute of hands on time to prepare the sample. 

Xpert® Xpress SARS-CoV-2 can be utilized in multiple settings where actionable test results are needed to make informed treatment decisions quickly. The test delivers point-of-care results with the same level of performance seen in reference labs. The test is designed for use on Cepheid’s GeneXpert® Systems, which have a worldwide footprint of more than 23,000 placements.
