The ARIES® MRSA Assay is an easy to use, in vitro diagnostic test for the direct detection of methicillin–resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) DNA in nasal swabs from patients at risk for nasal colonization, in under two hours.

The ARIES® MRSA Assay aids in the prevention and control of MRSA infections in healthcare settings. To increase the confidence in a MRSA call, the ARIES® MRSA Assay includes mecA/mecC resistance gene detection, and SCCmec and orfX targets to ensure the resistance gene is associated with and present in S. aureus.

The ARIES® MRSA Assay Offers:

  • Clinically Relevant Targets: Incorporation of mecA/mecC, SCCmec, and orfX for a single MRSA call
  • A Streamlined Workflow: On-board sample processing and automated analysis make running the assay quick and easy
  • Rapid Turnaround Time: Results are available in less than two hours
  • Flexibility and Efficiency: Run up to 12 ARIES® assays simultaneously, including ARIES® MRSA, C. difficile, and Group B Strep
  • Built-in Patient Safety: Internal barcode scanning matches samples to cassettes, decreasing the risk of sample input errors
