MRSA Detection

Minimal sample preparation with consistent, reliable results.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a major epidemiological problem in hospitals throughout the world. Current methodologies of MRSA detection are laborious and time consuming.

The number of MRSA‐associated hospital stays has more than tripled since 2000.  MRSA causes about 30% of surgical site infections, 24% of ventilator‐related pneumonia infections, 10% of central line infections, and 2% of urinary catheter‐associated bloodstream infections. Some 70% of all intensive care unit healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are MRSA‐related.

The economic burden of HAIs is sub‐stantial. For inpatient US hospital services, the direct cost per case ranges from $20,549‐$25,903, totaling $36‐$45 billion annually.

Based on QuanDx’s proprietory Yin-Yang Probe technology, the Q-MRSA detection kit is a novel multiplex real-time PCR system for simultaneous detection of all three genes, including six subtypes. Genomic DNA sample and the internal control is co-amplified in one reaction and identified by specific fluorescent probes. The detecting system provides a sensitive, specific, reliable and cost-effective tool that is easy to perform for the routine detection of MRSA.

Key Features:

  • Multiplexing: simultaneous detection of nuc, mecA and six subtypes of SCCmec:orfX junction.
  • Internal Control to exclude PCR inhibition and to monitor reagent integrity.
  • Compatible with current real-time qPCR instruments.
  • Rapid qPCR results in 1.5 hours.
  • Simple one step protocols: just add genomic DNA and go.

For Research Use Only. Not intended for use in diagnostic procedures.
