Cepheid Announces Accelerated Development of Flu A Panel Test
Date:9/9/2009

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cepheid (Nasdaq: CPHD) today announced the accelerated development of a Flu A (Influenza Virus) Panel test for use on the GeneXpert((R)) System. The test will be designed to provide 45-minute identification of Flu A infection, with specific presumptive identification of seasonal H1, seasonal H3, and H1N1 novel strain types.

"In recognition of this universal need, we reprioritized longer term projects within the company in order to deliver this product in a timely manner."

Subsequent to the EUA request for consideration by the FDA, the test will be made available in Europe as a CE IVD product.

"Currently, laboratories do not have a rapid test to discriminate among the multiple influenza strains expected to be present this flu season -- each of which have different antiviral drug susceptibilities," said David Persing, MD, PhD, Cepheid's Executive Vice President, Chief Medical & Technology Officer. "To make this test available as quickly as possible, we plan to accelerate development by leveraging the work completed on a previous influenza project supported through a 2007 contract with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Centers for Disease Control and P
