VERIGENE® Gram-Negative Blood Culture Test

Help patients recover from bacteremia more quickly

VERIGENE® Gram-Negative Blood Culture Test allows for proven clinical impact and outstanding economic value coupled with the right assay design.

Disease state

Approximately 250,000 US patients are diagnosed with bloodstream infections (BSIs) annually. Sepsis caused by a BSI has an average mortality rate of 16-40% and delay in appropriate treatment can add additional risk for the patient. Sepsis also has the unfortunate distinction of being the most expensive cause of hospitalization in the US at more than $20B per year.

Gram-negative bacteremia accounts for approximately 35% of all Negative blood cultures. Each pathogen and associated resistance gene often requires therapeutic adjustments from more generalized empiric therapy.

Sepsis is a disease associated with high mortality

The value of VERIGENE® Gram-Negative Blood Culture Test (BC-GN)

Empower clinicians to rapidly optimize treatment for bacteremia

Proven clinical impact

Identification of routine pathogens allows for rapid treatment optimization backed by years of peer-reviewed studies.

Outstanding economic value

Panel selection based on Gram stain helps improve diagnostic stewardship while keeping operational costs under control.

The right assay design

Non-amplified molecular chemistry helps minimize false results while allowing for universal collection media.

How the VERIGENE® Gram-Negative Blood Culture Test works

VERIGENE® BC-GN is a multiplexed in vitro diagnostic test for the detection and identification of pathogenic gram-negative bacteria. Subculturing is necessary for antimicrobial susceptibility testing and identification of organisms not detected by the test.



Consumables arrive at the laboratory ready to use with no further reagent preparation.


Time to results is 3X faster

Adding the VERIGENE result to traditional, standard-of-care workflow provides clinicians the opportunity to make targeted treatment decisions two hours after Gram stain.

Indications for VERIGENE® Gram-Negative Blood Culture Test use


For use on the VERIGENE® system with standard-of-care culture workflow

VERIGENE® Gram-Negative Blood Culture Kit

The VERIGENE® Bloodstream Infection (BSI) portfolio provides accurate test results in a clinically meaningful timeframe.

Resistance Gene
Species Escherichia coli* CTX-M (ESBL)
Klebsiella pneumoniae IMP
Klebsiella oxytoca KPC
Pseudomonas aeruginosa NDM
Serratia marcescens VIM
Genus Acinetobacter spp.
Citrobacter spp.
Enterobacter spp.
Proteus spp.

'* BC-GN will not distinguish Escherichia coli from Shigella spp. (S. dysenteriae, S. flexneri, S. boydii, and S. sonnei).

For use with the VERIGENE® System

The VERIGENE® System rapidly and accurately detects infectious pathogens and their associated drug-resistance markers.
Delivery of this time-critical information allows clinicians to provide targeted patient care more quickly, potentially leading to improved patient outcomes and lower treatment costs.
VERIGENE’s ease of use makes it a valuable system for use in both hospital-based and reference laboratories.
