Results following a clinical study using Xpert®
MRSA/SA Blood Culture, versus culture, for the fast molecular detection of SA and MRSA in positive blood culture bottles demonstrated1
- A reduction in result reporting median turnaround time of 24 hours, enabling earlier patient management review
- An improvement in appropriate antimicrobial prescribing for positive patients and an earlier discontinuing of empirical therapy for negative patients
Improved SA and MRSA management reduces inappropriate antimicrobial use, length of stay and healthcare costs.
