Xpert® Xpress SARS-CoV-2/Flu/RSV

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

Xpert<sup>®&nbsp;</sup>Xpress SARS-CoV-2/Flu/RSV

The Need


  • Detection and differentiation of flu, RSV, and COVID-19 which all present with similar symptoms
  • Insights for effective triage and patient management
  • Risk assessment for patients and staff while resuming traditional healthcare procedures
  • Identify potential cases of co-infections during respiratory season
  • Current flu and SARS-CoV-2 therapies need definitive diagnosis for each pathogen

The Solution


  • Actionable detection of SARS-CoV-2, Flu A, Flu B, and RSV in as little as 25 minutes^
  • Accurate on-demand results with 1 sample collection
  • Optimizes GeneXpert® System module capacity by combining 2 Xpress tests into 1
  • Standardization of results between the central lab and near patient testing sites

The Impact


  • Empower patients with rapid results to help keep their loved ones and the community safe
  • Assist hospitals to effectively manage limited resources
  • Provide labs with single-test confidence to accelerate workflows
  • Support clinicians with on-demand, timely, and accurate results
