  • The Need

    Staphylococcus aureus infections are an increasingly serious public health issue

    Colonized patients at risk for serious complications include surgical, trauma, burn and dialysis patients:

    • S. aureus colonized patients are up to 9 times more likely to develop surgical site infections than non-carriers
    • S. aureus is the major cause of access infections and bacteremia in dialysis patients
    • Carriage is the major risk factor for infection with S. aureus in dialysis patients
    • Up to 93% of nosocomial
    • S. aureus infections are caused by a patient’s own flora
    • SA and MRSA infections are associated with increases in length of hospital stay, costs, morbidity, and mortality
    • Nasal carriage of S. aureus and self-infection of wounds in ICU/Burn patients is well documented

    The Solution

    Rapid and accurate detection of colonization facilitates targeted infection control practices:

    • Optimize pre-admission workflow and counseling
    • Enables measures to reduce endogenous infection risk, including decolonization
    • Supports measures to reduced exogenous infection risk, including barrier/contact precautions
    • Aligns with infection control strategies as outlined by SCIP and SHEA/IDSA
