Cepheid, GeneXpert R2 Systems (10-color)
Description:The GeneXpert is an automated laboratory instrument intended to amplify target deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) or ribonucleic acid (RNA) in a clinical specimen using heat-stable polymerase enzymes and cycles of repeated heating and cooling (i.e., thermal cycling) to replicate a product [i.e., a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)]. Amplified product is detected and/or identified using oligonucleotide markers as it is produced (i.e., in real-time) or at the end-point. The analyzer also isolates, extract and prepare nucleic acid from the clinical specimen and/or culture isolate prior to amplification, and operates with minimal technician input and complete automation of all procedural steps. The GeneXpert Systems with 10-Color Technology offers increased multiplexing for an expanding test menu, a simple workflow and are flexible platforms for both point-of-care and hospital settings.
