Cepheid Announces European Release of Xpert CT/NG and Xpert CT, Delivering Rapid Detection and Differentiation of Chlamydia and Gonorrhoeae
Date:5/23/2012

SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cepheid (NASDAQ: CPHD) today announced that both Xpert® CT/NG and Xpert® CT have received CE marking, with shipments expected to begin immediately. Running on Cepheid's GeneXpert® System, the products are qualitative in vitro molecular diagnostic tests for the rapid detection and differentiation of Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG). With results in less than 90 minutes, new opportunities for same-day patient consultation and treatment are now available.

"We are bringing to market a true next-generation molecular diagnostic product for detection of CT/NG — a test designed from the ground up to provide unprecedented accuracy, ease of use, and results availability," said John Bishop, Cepheid's Chief Executive Officer. "We expect these innovative products to deliver new levels of confidence to clinicians making same-day decisions in consulting with, and treating, their patients — the critical first step in effectively managing these diseases."

"For the first time, we are able to offer highly accurate results we can act upon while the patient is still in the clinic. This may have far-reaching effects, such as improving contact tracing and reducing ongoing spread of infection in the community, as well as being popular with our patients," said Dr. Simon Goldenberg, Consultant Microbiologist, Guy's & St. Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, London. "I am impressed with the highly accurate results obtained with Xpert CT/NG. The simplicity of sample prep and the easy-to-use format of the GeneXpert cartridge provide same-day results in around 90 minutes."

Gonorrhoeae and Chlamydia are sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Both are easily treated when quickly detected and managed. However, according to the European Centers for Disease Control and Preve
