Abstract: The need for rapid methods to accurately detect methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is widely acknowledged. We assessed 3 commercial assays - 2 molecular, GeneOhm (BD Diagnostics) and GeneXpert (Cepheid) - and 1 culture-based, Baclite (3M) - for their ability to correctly identify MRSA utilising well-characterised isolates, either pure or in mixtures, at varying concentrations.
