bacterial population changing in the weeks preceding delivery, nor does it help women who go into pre-term labor. Xpert GBS is uniquely positioned to yield test results in about an hour, where standard culture-based testing may take several days. The Xpert GBS test allows doctors to make a prompt treatment decision, making it an extremely useful tool in the intrapartum period preceding delivery.

Enterovirus, the cause of viral meningitis, is not a life-threatening disease and typically self-resolves in less than 10 days. However, bacterial meningitis (caused by a bacterial infection) is potentially fatal. As patients present with meningitis symptoms, the need for a test to differentiate between the two conditions is critical. Traditional tests take days to provide results, whereas the Xpert EV test can provide physicians with results in about two and a half hours. With rapid EV results, physicians are able to make better patient management and treatment decisions.

About the GeneXpert Molecular Diagnostic Platform

The GeneXpert System is a closed, self-contained, fully-integrated and automated platform that represents a paradigm shift in the automation of molecular analysis, producing accurate results in a timely manner with minimal risk of contamination. The GeneXpert System is the only system to combine on-board sample preparation with real-time PCR (polymerase chain reaction) amplification and detection functions for fully integrated and automated nucleic acid analysis. The system is designed to purify, concentrate, detect and identify targeted nucleic acid sequences thereby delivering answers directly from unprocessed samples. Modular in design, the GeneXpert System has a variety of configurations to meet the broad range of testing demands of any clinical environment.
