Cepheid Receives Health Canada License for First Molecular Diagnostic Test for MRSA and S. aureus Soft Tissue Infections
Date:11/24/2008

ns University study, to be published in the December 2008 issue of the American Journal of Infection Control, more than 250,000 Canadian patients experience infected surgical wounds, blood infections, and antibiotic resistant organisms while in the hospital each year. The study also states that, since 1999, rates of MRSA have more than doubled -- from 2 to 5.2 per 1,000 hospital admissions across Canada.

Xpert MRSA/SA SSTI is Cepheid's fifth test to receive a Health Canada Medical Device License. Xpert(TM) MRSA/SA Blood Culture (BC) and Xpert(TM) HemosIL are currently under review.
