FDA Clearance for Cepheid's Xpert CT/NG
Xpert CT/NG incorporates several novel design features. First, our research team used in silico approaches to uncover multiple genomic targets for improving the accuracy of both CT and NG detection. Second, we included a first-in-class sample adequacy control that we believe overcomes limitations of first-generation technologies and adds significantly to the interpretation of diagnostic results generated by the GeneXpert System,' said David Persing, MD, Ph.D., Cepheid's Chief Medical and Technology Officer. 'Xpert CT/NG is clearly the most sophisticated test in its class, yet it can be performed on-demand by virtually any laboratory in order to maximize the medical impact of the results.'
