    GeneXpert® IV

    Cepheid - GeneXpert IV

      Fully integrated and automated on-demand molecular diagnostic system.

      Improving patient outcomes is the primary goal of any diagnostic system. But our GeneXpert® families of systems have set a new standard in workflow flexibility, 24/7 testing accuracy, and user-friendly design — delivered in an astonishingly beautiful and compact package. But we’ve done more than just repackage a good thing — we’ve improved on the fit, form, and function of the most popular molecular diagnostic platform on the market. GeneXpert System technology is the cornerstone of our unique approach to a molecular diagnostics product suite, which allows us to offer a complete menu of tests on a single, fully scalable, consolidated workstation. The GeneXpert System is available in a one, two, four, or 16-module configuration. All have our proven GeneXpert module at their analytic heart, and use the same patented cartridge technology for every Xpert® test.
      GeneXpert Technology
      Integrated micro-fluidic based system comprised of
      • Instrument platform
      • Cartridges
      • Protocols and Controls
      • Employ random access fluidic systems that bridge microfluidics with macro fluidics
      • Uses multiplex, rapid real-time PCR technique (6-colors)
      • Precision of microfluidics-based reconstitution, and simplification of automated filling
      • Exploits proven SmartCycler® technology (Incorporate same “solid-state” thermal cycler/fluorometer module)
      • Utilize families of cartridges
      • No wet interface between instrument and cartridge to eliminate carry-over
      • Integrated ultrasonic horn for rapid lysis of spores
      • Total internal control of reagent system –
      • No separate external positive or negative controls required
      • Smart fluidics
      • Encoded software driven motors for valve movement and integral hydraulic drives
      • Advanced micro fluidics technologies to enable complex sample prep processing protocols
      (Many milliliters down to 10 micro liters)
      • Automated data reduction and results interpretation.
      Currently Dr. Dangs Lab is performing MTB/RIF, BCR/ABL, Clostridium difficile, chlamydia trachomatis/neisseria gonorrhoeae tests on GeneXpert system.
