NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Cepheid has inked two contracts with the Veterans Affairs Federal Supply Service Schedule to supply VA hospitals with its pathogen tests and its GeneXpert systems, and another with a Veteran's hospital chain in the northern Midwest, the company said today.
Under the Federal Supply agreements, Cepheid will supply its GeneXpert systems and its methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus detection test, Xpert MRSA.
In a separate agreement, Cepheid also will supply the Veterans Integrated Services Network 12, also called the Great Lakes Health Care System, with the Xpert MRSA tests and the GeneXpert systems. The company said VISN 12 plans to conduct around 40,000 of the MRSA tests each year to help manage infection control.
Financial terms of the agreements were not released.
