Molecular Detection Inc. Further Strengthens Patent Portfolio Broadly Covering Detection of Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria
Date:2/7/2013

ta showing that our Detect-Ready panel is the most technically advanced screening test available today for MRSA and antibiotic resistance.  We believe that these patents, which include broad method and kit claims, reinforce our leadership position in the molecular detection of antibiotic-resistant and sensitive pathogens, a large and growing healthcare concern worldwide."

An article on antibiotic resistance in the January 24, 2013 edition of the New England Journal of Medicine notes that the recent annual report on global risks from the World Economic Forum concludes that "arguably the greatest risk…to human health comes in the form of antibiotic-resistant bacteria."  Antibiotic-resistant pathogens such as MRSA pose a growing problem to hospitals and healthcare facilities worldwide.  For example, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that in 2005, there were approximately 90,000 persons in the US diagnosed with severe MRSA infection and an estimated 19,000 died. 

MDI's Detect-Ready MRSA Panel is a qualitative, real-time PCR in vitro diagnostic test that is marketed in the European Union, Australia and Israel and is in late-stage development in the US.  Its CE-mark label has been expanded to include the detection of colonization with MSSA and other bacteria, in addition to MRSA.  Detect-Ready is the only marketed PCR-based MRSA screening test with the proven ability to accurately discriminate between these pathogens, thereby minimizing the potential for false positive results experienced with other MRSA screening tests and providing clinicians and healthcare facilities with the reliable information they need to assess and minimize patient risk.

Detect-Ready kits are compatible with a number of the real time-PCR platforms currently found in most hospitals.  They offer healthcare providers a high-performance sample-to-answer MRSA screeni
