Kettering Health Network Partners With DIATHERIX Laboratories To Improve Quality, Efficiency of Care
Date:3/15/2010

KETTERING, Ohio, March 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Kettering Health Network is the nation's first health system to use a new testing process developed by DIATHERIX Laboratories (www.DIATHERIX.com), which dramatically reduces the time it takes to detect H1N1, methicillin resistant staphylococcus (MRSA), Clostridium difficile (C-diff) and other infectious diseases. Kettering Medical Center (KMC) will be the first hospital in the network to use the testing system and DIATHERIX will maintain an onsite lab at the facility.

The method known as Target-Enriched Multiplex Polymerase Chain Reaction (TEM-PCR), licensed for use by Huntsville, Alabama-based DIATHERIX, allows microbiologists to test simultaneously for multiple pathogens from one specimen. The test takes approximately six hours to perform, compared to the conventional technology which takes a minimum of 48 hours. Rapid results improve care by reducing the rate of healthcare-associated infections due to multi-drug resistant organisms.

While it improves care, TEM-PCR is also a money saver because it allows healthcare workers to appropriately isolate patients with communicable diseases in a timely fashion. Projected savings for MRSA alone is about $225,000
