Xpert® vanA

Le premier test rapide et précis qui facilite la surveillances des ERV


45-minutes.* No Compromises.

Xpert vanA empowers clinicians to make critical decisions at the time it is needed most, thereby improving the quality of patient care while reducing cost.

Le besoin

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 30% of all healthcare-associated enterococcal infections are caused by Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococci (VRE).1 However, VRE can be even more prevalent in high risk groups, such as immunocompromised and ICU patients.

The human and financial impact of VRE is high2:

  • Attributable mortality: 10 %
  • Extended length of stay: 6,2 days
  • Incremental cost: $12 800

The CDC and SHEA have both published guidelines on how to reduce or eliminate healthcare associated infections.3,4 As a part of a quality infection control program, Cepheid's Xpert vanA provides:

  • Rapid and accurate detection of the vanA gene most closely associated with VRE colonization
  • Superior NPV required in a surveillance test
  • Easy-to-use test with minimal hands-on time
