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).

"I am impressed with the highly accurate results obtained with Xpert CT/NG.
