FAST and EASY to Use Assays that Detect Clinically Important Pathogens from Positive Blood Cultures.
AdvanDx offers a number of assays that cover the most prevalent bacteria and yeast found in positive blood cultures. All of the assays use a proprietary PNA Technology which allows laboratories to report results 1-3 days earlier than conventional methods.
AdvanDx currently offers the fastest assay on the market for the detection of bloodstream infections. QuickFISH, a 20 minute pathogen identification test for positive blood cultures, allows hospitals to report the pathogen ID with the Gram stain in order to help clinicians and pharmacists target appropriate antimicrobial therapy.
mecA XpressFISH is the newest assay that has been added to the AdvanDx platform. This assay is the first and only phenotypic assay on the market for the identification of methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) in about an hour.
