Molecular Detection Inc. Launches Improved Version of Detect-Ready® MRSA Panel at 2012 ECCMID Congress
Date:3/30/2012

LONDON and WAYNE, Pa., March 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Molecular Detection Inc. (MDI), a company developing Detect-Ready® tests designed to increase the speed and accuracy of infectious disease diagnosis, today announced it will release a new version of its Detect-Ready MRSA Panel at the 22nd European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID).  The superior performance of the Detect-Ready MRSA Panel has been further enhanced by increasing the number of MRSA strains it can detect, adding MRSA strains known to be missed by at least one other market-leading assay to the universe of all known common MRSA strains that were already included.  The new kit also shortens the sample preparation process and minimizes required "hands-on" time.

The Detect-Ready MRSA Panel is a qualitative real-time PCR in vitro diagnostic test.  It is CE-marked for the detection of MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) and MSSA (methicillin-sensitive S. aureus) and is the only marketed PCR-based MRSA screening test with the proven ability to discriminate accurately between these pathogens and other related bacteria. 

"We are delighted to offer this improved version of the Detect-Ready MRSA Panel to our growing customer base," commented David Wilson, MDI's Vice President for Commercial Operations, Europe.  "The inclusion of additional covered MRSA strains reinforces the superior performance of our existing test, which was recently reconfirmed in an independent comparative study with a market leading competitor.  In addition, the simplicity and ease-of-use of Detect-Ready MRSA is further enhanced with our new streamlined protocol for sample prep." 

Comparative data confirming the greater accuracy of the Detect-Ready MRSA panel was generated by researchers at St. Thomas' Hospital in London as part of an academic study.  The study compared the performance of MDI's tes
