The VERIGENE® System offers automated, cost-effective multiplex capabilities that rapidly and accurately detect infectious pathogens and drug resistance markers, without relying on time-consuming culture methods.
Delivery of this time-critical information enables clinicians to provide targeted patient care more quickly, potentially leading to improved patient outcomes, lower costs, optimized antibiotic therapy, reduced spread of antibiotic resistance, and most importantly, saved lives.
VERIGENE is powering faster treatment decisions in more than half of the top U.S. hospitals. VERIGENE’s ease of use makes it a valuable system for use in both hospital-based and reference laboratories.
Tests run on the VERIGENE platform are designed to target infections in the bloodstream, respiratory tract, and gastrointestinal tract.
The VERIGENE Test Cartridge is a single-use, self-contained test unit comprised of the following:
Each Test Cartridge is designed for multiplex analyses of one patient sample.
The VERIGENE System instrumentation consists of a VERIGENE Reader and one or multiple VERIGENE Processor SPs.
The VERIGENE Reader manages sample information, reads results from processed cartridges, and allows for results printing, internal data storage, and LIS connectivity without the need for an external PC.
The VERIGENE Processor SP is a modular, easy to use bench top analyzer that combines automated nucleic acid extraction, purification, amplification (if required), and hybridization in each module. These advanced capabilities allow users to run VERIGENE Tests on-demand in response to testing requirements, without the need for batch processing, specially trained personnel, or specialized facilities.
The VERIGENE System is scalable, allowing throughput customization to meet the size and testing demands of each laboratory.
