Rapid MRSA test

Rapid MRSA test: The rapid MRSA test is a laboratory test used to identify methicillin-resistant and non-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) from a sample of infected skin, blood, or nasal secretion. The test detects nucleic acid sequences specific for the two different, but high-related bacteria in about an hour. Methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) is resistant to common antibiotics used to treat S. aureus infections.
