Detect Mycoplasma genitalium and macrolide resistance markers
Sample-to-answer solution validated for all Cepheid GeneXpert® Systems
Mycoplasma genitalium (Mgen) infections contribute to significant portion of non-chlamydial non-gonococcal urethritis in men and in women and treatment is challenging due to high levels of macrolide resistance.
ResistancePlus® MG FleXible offers simultaneous detection and identification of M. genitalium and azithromycin (macrolide) resistance to support appropriate treatment decisions at the earliest opportunity for improved patient management.
Validated on hundreds of clinical samples, ResistancePlus® MG FleXible demonstrates excellent sensitivity and specificity.
ResistancePlus® MG FleXible brings accuracy and simplicity to your lab in combination with GeneXpert® Systems for a complete solution. Easily implemented into your existing workflow or setting.
Demonstrated clinical performance – for more detail please see the ResistancePlus® MG FleXible Instructions for Use.

Clinical evaluation of the ResistancePlus MG FleXible test on the GeneXpert Infinity-48 s instrument: A near-patient assay for simultaneous detection of Mycoplasma genitalium and macrolide resistance
ResistancePlus® MG FleXible performance compared with Seegene Allplex STI essential assay and against Sanger sequencing. Tested146 samples (95 Mgen positive, 51 Mgen Negative) resulting in 94.7% positive agreement, and 100% negative agreement for Mgen detection and 94.1% positive agreement and 96.0% negative agreement.
Evaluation of the ResistancePlus MG FleXible Cartridge for Near-Point-of-Care Testing of Mycoplasma Genitalium and Associated Macrolide Resistance Mutations
Tested 181 clinical samples tested with ResistancePlus® MG FleXible and compared with in-house Mgen assay and open platform ResistancePlus® MG. Results demonstrated the cartridge test was highly sensitive and specific for the detection of M. genitalium and 23S rRNA mutations.
Evaluation of the ResistancePlus MG FleXible Assay for Detection of Wild-Type and 23S rRNA-Mutated Mycoplasma Genitalium Strains
ResistancePlus® MG FleXible was evaluated for analytical sensitivity, specificity, reproducibility, inhibition, plus clinical sensitivity compared with a reference real-time PCR assay. Found to be more sensitive than the reference MgPa assay, and concluded it may increase ease of use and considerably decrease hands-on time for sample preparation.
SpeeDx Pty. Ltd. announced an agreement with Cepheid to manufacture their market-leading ResistancePlus® MG tests for use on the GeneXpert® System. ResistancePlus® MG FleXible is the first test in Cepheid’s FleXible Cartridge program.
