Cepheid Receives CE Mark for Xpert Xpress CoV-2 plus

New "plus" version of test adds a 3rd gene target to enhance detection of future SARS-CoV-2 variants

SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Cepheid today announced it has received the CE mark for XpertXpress CoV-2plus, a rapid molecular diagnostic test for qualitative detection of the virus that causes COVID-19.

Gene Targets

Viruses constantly change through mutation and these mutations can give rise to new variants with unique characteristics. Multiple variants of the virus that causes COVID-19 have been documented globally during the pandemic. Cepheid is proactively addressing this increasing genetic diversity by enhancing gene coverage. The new plus version of the test incorporates a 3rd conserved genetic target for SARS-CoV-2 detection to meet the challenge of future viral mutations and optimizes nucleocapsid gene probes to enable consistent virus detection.

Xpert Xpress CoV-2plus joins Xpert Xpress CoV-2/Flu/RSV plus and others in Cepheid's growing portfolio of PCRplus respiratory tests that deliver rapid, accurate, and actionable respiratory results. Xpert Xpress CoV-2/Flu/RSV plus continues to be the most appropriate product for when multiple viruses that cause influenza-like illnesses are circulating. Xpert Xpress CoV2 plus is authorized to be used on any individuals, including for screening those without symptoms or reasons to suspect COVID-19.

Xpert Xpress CoV-2 plus is designed for use on any of Cepheid's over 40,000 GeneXpert systems placed worldwide. The test can provide rapid on-demand detection of SARS-CoV-2 in as soon as 20 minutes for positive results.1

"From the beginning of the pandemic, we have been keenly focused on staying ahead of SARS-CoV-2 genetic drift and have designed our tests in anticipation of current and potential future variants." said David Persing, M.D., Ph.D., EVP, and Chief Scientific Officer. "The high sensitivity of this test is now especially important for recently announced Test-to-Treat initiatives, for which early detection is important for achieving the best clinical outcomes of antiviral therapies."

Xpert Xpress CoV-2 plus is expected to begin shipping in May.
