The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in the UK has developed a medtech innovation briefing (MIB) on eazyplex SuperBug kits for detecting carbapenemase-producing organisms using Genie II.
MIBs provide a description of the medical technology, including its likely place in therapy, the costs of using the technology and a critical review of the strengths and weaknesses of the relevant published evidence. Their purpose is to provide objective information on device and diagnostic technologies to aid local decision-making by clinicians, managers and procurement professionals.
If you are a medical professional in clinical microbiology, it will be instructive to read this report, which gives a pretty good account of the benefits and drawbacks of using the eazyplex in a clinical microbiology setting.
The report can be read online here.
Amplex BioSystems is represented in Denmark by You Do Bio. We can arrange a full demonstration of the technology in your laboratory.
