MRSA screening programs are effective in reducing the rate of HAI. However, widespread use of screening for triage is inhibited by the cost of testing and the lack of sufficient pathogen characterization.

The fastest and most comprehensive detection and characterization od MRSA, including antibiotic resistance genes and the PVL toxin producing variant of the pathogen.

  • Detection of MRSA
  • Detection of MSSA
  • Detection of PVL coding gene
  • 15 min TAT (time to information)
  • Rapid detection of colonization or infection
  • Potentially better outcomes by avoiding HAI infection and associated complications
  • Fewer hospital days
  • Implementation of contact precautions to reduce spread
  • Provide anti-decolonization for patients who test positive
  • Reduce isolation days
  • Avoid excess hospital costs
  • Support active surveillance and antimicrobial stewardship
