SpeeDx Increase European Distribution Network
SpeeDx have announced signing two new distribution partners, creating comprehensive access for customers to market-leading SpeeDx Resistance Plus ® and Plex PCR ® tests across Europe. AB ANALITICA will distribute throughout Italy and Immuno Diagnostic Oy will cover Finland.
“Our new distribution partners have strong sales presence in their regions and close working relationships with the key customers that are interested in our solutions,” says Colin Denver, SpeeDx CEO. “Antibiotic resistance in sexually transmitted diseases is a top concern for authorities and testing bodies across Europe, and now more laboratories can access our ResistancePlus tests for Mycoplasma genitalium and gonorrhoea to help address the real need for Resistance Guided Therapy.”
The SpeeDx Resistance Plus portfolio includes Resistance Plus GC* (CE-IVD) - the first commercially available test that combines Neisseria gonorrhoeae (GC) detection with markers for ciprofloxacin susceptibility. Resistance Plus GC enables stewardship of last-line antibiotic treatments by directing therapy towards ciprofloxacin when appropriate. Ciprofloxacin is a simple oral antibiotic, and surveillance data indicates it is still effective for up to 70% of gonorrhoea infections.1-4 The market-leading Resistance Plus MG assay from SpeeDx simultaneously detects Mycoplasma genitalium and genetic markers for azithromycin resistance, with demonstrated clinical outcomes of increased patient cure rate up to 92% compared with 40% cure rates when using MG-detection-only testing.5 SpeeDx also plans to release a new Resistance Plus MG test for resistance markers linked to second-line antibiotic treatment failure.
The SpeeDx portfolio also includes Plex PCR VHS - a multiplex test for herpes simplex virus (1 and 2), varicella zoster and Treponema pallidum (syphilis). Further tests in the Plex PCR portfolio include plans for a comprehensive multiplex panel for respiratory virus testing as well as a respiratory bacterial infection testing solution.
