Learn more about cCMV

One out of every 200 babies will be born with cCMV – many are asymptomatic. Of those infected with cCMV, 1 out 5 babies will suffer from conditions such as hearing and vision loss, cerebral palsy, or mental disability.

Congenital CMV has the highest incidence among congenital conditions but is often missed in newborns because 90% are born asymptomatic. Congenital CMV test results within 21 days of birth can make a difference in the outcome of a child since early intervention can have a lifetime impact.

  1. Saliva is an easy to collect sample, a swab moistened with saliva is enough to run the test (do not need any more than a flocked swab moistened with saliva)
  2. Antigen rich sample due to the fact that CMV replicates in the salivary glands, high level of shedding
  3. Recommended sample by the CMV consensus guidelines
  4. In studies, saliva performs equal or better than urine in the detection of congenital CMV
  5. Urine collection can be a challenge, squeezing diapers or having to put a catheter is more complicated than collecting a saliva sample

Amplify, Together. Our solutions Go Beyond the Products.

As committed partners in the shared healthcare mission of improving patient outcomes and quality of life, a diagnostic platform itself does not drive essential testing demand and utilization. We are proud of the diagnostic portfolio we provide, and more proud that our support goes beyond the product you purchase.

Collaborating on educational outreach content with our collective subject matter expertise, we offer our partners educational and outreach tools – driving testing utilization as part of our total solution.

Below are examples of educational content available to our customers, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg! If you’re interested in additional tools to help us educate and drive test utilization, click here to have one of our representatives reach out to discuss.
