bioMerieux Adds Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) Screening Tool to its Arsenal
Date:10/28/2009

DURHAM, N.C., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- bioMerieux - a world leader in the field of in vitro diagnostics - today announced the U.S. launch of chromID MRSA, a simple and cost-effective solution in the struggle against MRSA. The product recently received FDA 510(k) clearance for the detection of MRSA, one of the most pervasive sources for high-morbidity healthcare-associated infections (HAI) in U.S. hospitals.(1) The current national debate on escalating healthcare costs includes screening for multi-drug resistant bacteria, such as MRSA. chromID MRSA is perfectly adapted for general screening processes in healthcare institutions as it economically provides unambiguous results with a simple protocol. The presence of MRSA is visually identified by green colored colonies on chromID MRSA chromogenic media (biomerieux-usa.com/chromid) after a 24-hour incubation period.

"Helping healthcare facilities to cost-effectively detect antibiotic-resistant strains with improved accuracy can play a critical role in the bigger picture of decreasing MRSA-related nosocomial infections," said Steward.

As a leader in Microbiology, it is bioMerieux's objective to provide customers with the most flexible and complete solution to effectively manage MRSA, spanning manual and automated techniques, from culture-based methods to molecular biology. A more comprehensive approach to containing MRSA needs to be taken, involving critical functions such as resistance detection, organism strain typing for outbreak investigations, hygiene, and antibiotic stewardship programs.

"We applaud organizations like bioMerieux for playing a key role on World MRSA Day and for
