bioMerieux Adds Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) Screening Tool to its Arsenal

bringing cost-effective solutions to our healthcare facilities," said Jeanine Thomas, MRSA survivor and founder of the MRSA Survivors Network. Thomas recently hosted the Inaugural World MRSA Day with a remembrance ceremony for those who have lost their lives or suffered from this preventable disease. Thomas added, "MRSA survivors, their families, and all those touched by this disease finally had their day and their voices heard."

A recent study published in Clinical Infectious Diseases examined the hospital and societal costs of antimicrobial-resistant infections (ARIs) in a Chicago teaching hospital.(2) Nearly half (43%) of the patients with antibiotic-resistant infections in the study had an infection due to MRSA. The paper also discussed the need for a more comprehensive evaluation of the cost of resistance and the potential economic benefits of prevention programs like antibiotic stewardship.

chromID MRSA simplifies the detection of MRSA, enabling more economical implementation of adapted prevention measures. chromID MRSA agar is a selective and differential chromogenic medium for the qualitative detection of nasal colonization of methicillin-resistant S. aureus. This tool aids in the prevention and control of MRSA infections in healthcare settings. bioMerieux's chromID MRSA has been widely adopted throughout Europe over the past few years, leading to more than two dozen publications in peer-reviewed journals and international conferences.

Identifying resistance and helping clinicians get clear actionable information so they can begin effective antibiotic therapy as early as possible is an integral part of bioMerieux's recently launched S.M.A.R.T. Campaign (biomerieux-usa.com/smart). The Solutions to Manage the Antimicrobial Resistance Threat (S.M.A.R.T.) initiative promises to create more educational resources for the lab and to provi
