Definitively diagnosing MRSA
This article was originally published in Start Up
Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus infections are deadly for patients and expensive for hospitals to treat. Current methods of detecting MRSA are plagued with significant numbers of false-positive results. Molecular Detection Inc.’s Detect-Ready screening assay is designed to distinguish accurately if a positive result indicates the presence of MRSA or a combination of different bacteria, some of which may not be resistant to antibiotics. The test can be run with equipment found in most clinical laboratories, enabling hospitals to make informed clinical decisions about the best way to treat patients.
