Zeus Scientific to Offer a Rapid Nasal Screening Test for Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA)
Date:7/9/2008

RARITAN, N.J., July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Zeus Scientific, Inc. today announced its intention to offer a rapid nasal screening test for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). The test is based upon Zeus' own proprietary technology utilizing the enrichment and nucleic acid amplification of a target pathogen.

Available through the Zeus worldwide distribution network, the new MRSA test will enable healthcare professionals to identify carriers of this pathogen within two hours. Published studies have shown that time-to-results is critical in demonstrating a reduction in MRSA hospital infection rates.

In addition to significantly improving assay performance over other technologies in this product space, the nasal MRSA test will be offered as a low cost alternative to the two currently FDA approved MRSA PCR products without sacrificing time to results or performance.

Zeus is uniquely positioned in this area through relevant patent filings, further expanding its Intellectual Property portfolio and providing new product protection.
