The Need

Globally, co-circulation of SARS-CoV-2, influenza and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) was observed during the 2022 respiratory season with the easing of COVID-19 measures. This led to increased burden on healthcare infrastructure and increased risk of severe illness for high-risk populations.1,2
  • Rapid testing to facilitate early diagnosis of high-risk patient populations and adoption of respiratory multiplexed tests with the integration of SARS-CoV-2 testing are required.5
  • Ensure the accuracy of test performance despite new SARS-CoV-2 variants4 and influenza A mutations.3
  • Rapid testing results to facilitate early diagnosis for effective patient management.5
  • Multiplexing ability for the most prevalent and actionable pathogens (SARS-CoV-2, influenza A, influenza B, RSV) to simplify the diagnosis process.

The Solution

The Xpert Xpress CoV-2/Flu/RSV plus test is a multiplexed real-time PCR test intended for the simultaneous in vitro qualitative detection and differentiation of RNA from SARS-CoV-2, influenza A, influenza B, and/or RSV in nasopharyngeal swab or anterior nasal swab specimens collected from individuals with signs and/or symptoms of respiratory viral infection.
The Xpert Xpress CoV-2/Flu/RSV plus test:
  • Provides fast and accurate results in as early as 25 minutes# for SARS-CoV-2.
  • Utilizes a multi-gene target approach for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza providing target redundancy to mitigate the potential impact of genetic shift and drift on strain detection.
  • Detects SARS-CoV-2, influenza A, influenza B, and/or RSV simultaneously.
# With Early Assay Termination (EAT) for positive results.

The Impact

  • Xpert Xpress CoV-2/Flu/RSV plus allows for accurate and rapid results, optimizing diagnostic efficiency and improving the provision of appropriate treatment6
  • Testing with Xpert Xpress CoV-2/Flu/RSV plus may result in significant cost-savings compared to antigen and send-out PCR testing strategies and may result in fewer hospitalizations, ICU admissions, mechanical ventilations, and deaths compared to antigen and send-out PCR testing strategies6
  • Gives the right result first time, reducing the need for reflex and/or confirmatory testing7

This test has not been FDA cleared or approved. This test has been authorized by FDA under an EUA for use by authorized laboratories. Xpert Xpress CoV-2/Flu/RSV plus has been authorized only for the simultaneous qualitative detection and differentiation of nucleic acids from SARS-CoV-2, influenza A, influenza B, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and not for any other viruses or pathogens. The emergency use of this product is only authorized for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of emergency use of in vitro diagnostics for detection and/or diagnosis of COVID-19 under Section 564(b)(1) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(b)(1), unless the declaration is terminated or authorization is revoked sooner.
