Cepheid is a molecular diagnostics company that develops manufactures, and markets fully-integrated systems and tests for analysis in the clinical, industrial and bio threat markets. The GeneXpertÂ® systems enable rapid, sophisticated genetic testing for organisms and genetic-based diseases by automating otherwise complex manual laboratory procedures.
The GeneXpertÂ®, in combination with the proprietary cartridge technology, is an easy-to-use system which integrates the complex and time-intensive steps of Real Time PCR, (Sample preparation, DNA amplification and detection).
By using a flexible, scalable, modular system the GeneXpertÂ® negates the need for the traditional three room approach, freeing up space , staff time and empowering clinically relevant decisions in Real Time to better affect the patient's experience whether that be direct on the Ward or from the core Laboratory.
Through its strong molecular biology capabilities, Cepheid is focusing on those applications where rapid molecular testing is particularly important, such as identifying infectious disease and cancer in the clinical market; food, agricultural, environmental testing, and identifying bio-terrorism agents in the biothreat market.
