Molecular Detection's Detect-Ready™ MRSA Assay Demonstrates Strong Performance In Independent Comparative Study From Leading UK Hospital
Date:10/13/2010

the excellent sensitivity and specificity of our Detect-Ready MRSA assay," said Todd Wallach, CEO of MDI.  "We believe our Detect-Ready MRSA assay offers healthcare providers a high-performance MRSA screening test with an unmatched combination of accuracy, speed, flexibility and cost-effectiveness, and we look forward to the results of additional comparative studies currently underway."

Drug-resistant, potentially deadly MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) infections are a growing problem in healthcare facilities around the world.  The Detect-Ready MRSA kit is a qualitative real-time PCR in vitro diagnostic test for the direct detection of MRSA nasal colonization to aid in the prevention and control of MRSA infections in hospitals and other healthcare settings.  The proprietary technology in the Detect-Ready kits provides a unique differential diagnosis engine that produces highly accurate results, minimizing the false positives and false negatives experienced with other MRSA screening kits.  Samples for testing are simple to obtain using nasal swabs and the assay's ready-to-use pre-mixed reagents require only the addition of patient sample to run the test, which provides results in less than three hours.  

Unlike other testing products that require special handling, Detect-Ready kits are off-the-shelf room temperature-stabilized and require no refrigeration.  Detect-Ready kits are compatible with multiple rt-PCR platforms currently found in clinical laboratories, including the Roche LightCycler®, Qiagen Rotor-Gene® and Cepheid SmartCycler®.  The flexibility to leverage existing infrastructure and equipment to run Detect-Ready assays eliminates the need for additional hospital capital investment.  

The Detect-Ready MRSA assay kit has received the CE mark certification for sales in the European Union.  It is distributed in the UK and Ireland by Launch Diagno
