Cepheid Announces European Release of First On-Demand Molecular Pre-Surgical Screening Test for Simultaneous Detection of Methicillin-Sensitive and Resistant S. aureus
Date:3/31/2009

World's Most Comprehensive On-Demand HAI Test Portfolio Now Available to European Hospitals

SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cepheid (Nasdaq: CPHD) today announced the release of the Xpert(R) MRSA/SA Nasal test as a European CE IVD Mark product under the European Directive on In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices. The test is designed for the simultaneous detection of nasal carriage of both Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus in less than one hour. Xpert MRSA/SA Nasal is Cepheid's tenth CE IVD test for use on the GeneXpert(R) System, the world's leading Healthcare Associated Infection (HAI) molecular testing platform.

"With the addition of Xpert MRSA/SA Nasal, Cepheid now offers European clinicians the most comprehensive suite of on-demand molecular tests currently available to aid in the overall management of HAIs," said John Bishop, Cepheid's Chief Executive Officer. "This includes a broad line of diagnostic, surveillance, and pre-surgical screening tests for MRSA, SA, C. difficile, and vanA/vanB."

Staphylococcus aureus is widely recognized as one of the most common causes of HAIs worldwide. Surgical units are high-risk areas for potentially serious consequences of post-operative complications, including surgical site infections (SSIs). Cepheid's on-demand Xpert MRSA/SA Nasal test provides rapid determination of pre-operative carrier status by detecting MRSA and S. aureus, enabling clinicians to determine the best course of treatment for colonized patients.

"Determining pre-operative carrier status of S. aureus, including MRSA, can be helpful in targeting patient treatment, including decolonization, shown to reduce post operative SSIs," said Professor Jan Kluytmans, M
