Striving to Accurately Diagnose Disease

Molecular Testing

Mercy Medical Center Microbiology Lab offers the Cepheid GeneXpert Dx Instrument for on-demand, continuous access molecular testing. This advanced technology platform can improve patient throughput and maximize the quality of patient care.

All test requests for C. difficile are being run on the GeneXpert. Clostridium difficile is the common cause of antibiotic-associated diarrhea. C. diff infections have been increasing in incidence and severity.

· GeneXpert assay’s accuracy eliminates the need for additional or repeat testing.

· Patient management improves by allowing physicians to administer appropriate therapy.

· For hospitalized patients: Infection control measures are initiated faster so the length of hospital stay for patients decrease.
