Zeus offers rapid nasal screening test for MRSA

Zeus Scientific : 10 July, 2008  (New Product)
Zeus Scientific is to offer a rapid nasal screening test for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) based upon Zeus' own proprietary technology utilising the enrichment and nucleic acid amplification of a target pathogen.
Available through the Zeus worldwide distribution network, the new MRSA test will enable healthcare professionals to identify carriers of this pathogen within two hours. Published studies have shown that time-to-results is critical in demonstrating a reduction in MRSA hospital infection rates.

In addition to significantly improving Assay performance over other technologies in this product space, the nasal MRSA test will be offered as a low cost alternative to the two currently FDA approved MRSA PCR products without sacrificing time to results or performance.

Zeus is positioned in this area through relevant patent filings, further expanding its Intellectual Property portfolio and providing new product protection.
