Cepheid Receives Emergency Use Authorization from FDA for Xpert Ebola Diagnostic Test

Cepheid announced it has received Emergency Use Authorization from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for Xpert® Ebola, a molecular diagnostic test for Ebola Zaire Virus that delivers results in less than two hours. The test runs on the Cepheid GeneXpert® Systems. Ebola was first discovered in 1976 near the Ebola River in what is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Since then, outbreaks have appeared sporadically in Africa. The 2014 Ebola epidemic is the large in history, affecting multiple countries in West Africa. In the United States four cases have been reported: two imported cases that included one death, and two locally acquired cases in healthcare workers.

Cepheid Receives FDA Clearance for Expanded Claims on Tuberculosis Test

Cepheid announced it has received clearance from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for expanded claims on its Xpert® MTB/RIF test. Xpert MTB/RIF detects Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTB-complex) DNA and in positive specimens, provides simultaneous identification of rifampin-resistance associated mutations of the rpoB gene. The expanded product claim enables clinicians to use either one or two negative Xpert MTB/RIF test results, in conjunction with other clinical and laboratory data, to remove patients from airborne infection isolation (AII), commonly referred to as respiratory isolation. The test runs on the Cepheid GeneXpert® System, the molecular diagnostic platform with over 8,000 systems deployed globally in both developed and emerging market countries.
