New Rapid MRSA Test

A new blood test can find MRSA, the so-called "super bug" that is a staph infection that is unaffected by many common antibiotics.

Wednesday the FDA cleared the way for a rapid MRSA blood test called the BD Genome Test. 

Instead of two days in the lab, like most tests now, the FDA says this new test takes just two hours to find that kind of staph infection.
