GenMark Dx® - ePlex® Rapid Pathogen Detection

ePlex - simple multiplex molecular testing.

ePlex - Transforming Multiplex Molecular Testing

For respiratory pathogens and blood culture ID. A simple to use, walkaway, sample-to-answer solution designed to deliver rapid, actionable results and improve efficiency within the laboratory as well as at the point of care.

GenMarkDX offer the most comprehensive respiratory and blood culture panels including resistance gene detection along with a bi-directional interface for rapid and secure patient results.

Software Designed to Improve Efficiency and Patient Care

While many systems claim sample-to-answer capabilities, only ePlex is able to integrate the entire process from order-to-report to better realise the patient and laboratory benefits of rapid, multiplex molecular diagnostics. ePlex offers a number of unique solutions that were thoughtfully engineered to address the biggest challenges facing the clinical laboratory and to support hospital systems in delivering patient centred, value-based care.


Random and continuous access to the system


Add any test type at any time to the system


ePlex offers the shortest hands on time possible


Modular in design to allow simple expansion

Modular and Scalable to Meet the Demands of Any Institution

ePlex offers a modular and scalable design that means it is simple to increase testing capacity. With five different instrument configurations that range from 3 to 24 test bays, ePlex delivers consistent order-to-report service levels across institutions of any size. ePlex NP (Near Patient) brings syndromic testing closer to the patient at institutions running as few as 12 patient samples per shift. The ePlex 4 Tower configuration outpaces any sample-to-answer platform in some of the world’s largest diagnostic laboratories.
