Novel Molecular Assay for Patient Screening Detects S. aureus and Newly Emerging MRSA Strains Available in the United States
Date:12/3/2013

SIs due to MRSA increase hospital length of stay for patients by an average of 23 days and cost more than $40,000 per case to treat.iii Nasal carriage of S. aureus, including MRSA, is a well-defined risk factor for subsequent infection in surgical patients. Rapid screening and targeted decolonization decreases SSIs by nearly 60 percent and improves clinical and economic outcomes for surgical patients.iv,v

With many commercial assays, SA strains carrying SCCmec where the mecA gene is absent (commonly called "dropout mutants") may be incorrectly detected as MRSA. These false positive results can lead to inappropriate use of vancomycin for surgical prophylaxis and unnecessary, expensive isolation of patients.vi  MRSA strains with the recently discovered mecC gene account for nearly three percent of all new MRSA casesvii but cannot be detected by assays that do not detect that gene.viii These false negative results can lead to inappropriate surgical prophylaxis in patients who should receive vancomycin to cover for MRSA and lack of appropriate isolation precautions to prevent transmission in the operating room and during hospitalization.

The BD MAX StaphSR Assay represents an important milestone in BD's commitment to provide healthcare institutions with cutting edge assays to detect and prevent HAIs. Other HAI assays available on the BD MAX System include BD MAX™ MRSA for the detection of MRSA DNA and BD MAX™ Cdiff for the detection of toxigenic Clostridium difficile DNA. These BD MAX™ HAI Solutions combine efficiency with the flexibility to perform multiple HAI assays in the same run, allowing hospital laboratories to customize testing in response to current and future challenges in the fight against HAIs.
