The Need


MRSA is an evolving threat that requires uncompromising solutions

  • Every year, new strains emerge and threaten to erode recent hard-fought gains in HAI prevention1
  • Active surveillance is proven to help reduce HAI rates,2 but sensitivity and speed are essential3
  • Effective infection control programs require an on-demand test that meets clinician and laboratory needs

The Solution


The #1 on-demand test for MRSA colonization is now improved

  • Expanded coverage demonstrated using an extensive library of over 195 MRSA strains from around the world4
  • Updated primers detect both mecA and mecC strains and reduce false-positive results due to “empty cassettes”4
  • Validated for use with both rayon swabs and ESwab™ (Copan)4

The Impact


Xpert MRSA NxG is an accurate, on-demand PCR test that provides actionable results in about an hour.

Shift your lab from reactive to proactive

  • Quickly identify MRSA-colonized patients who require contact precautions to reduce the risk of transmission and avoid costly outbreaks
  • Improve overall patient safety by reducing the risk of MRSA infection

The results

Studies have shown that MRSA screening programs using on-demand molecular tests contribute to:

  • Decreased MRSA infection rates in the ICU by 62%6
  • Reduced isolation days by 44%5
  • Decreased overall hospital costs5
