Bordetella now IVD

In partnership with Focus Diagnostics – one of the biggest reference labs in USA – Southern Cross Diagnostics is please to announce that the Simplexa Bordetella pertussis and parapertussis molecular diagnostic kit is now registered as an IVD.
Pertussis is one of the most frequent and potentially fatal childhood respiratory illnesses in Australia. As an IVD kit, it would ensure that this kit is readily accessible to all labs. Its extraction free, rapid real time detection  sets a new standard in whooping cough diagnosis and provides practitioners and parents ease of mind.
