Get greater versatility with new respiratory assays on the BD MAX™ System

In a climate of seasonal or pandemic infections, your laboratory should be prepared to face the soaring demands for testing of respiratory tract infections (RTIs).

Due to the highly transmittable nature of RTIs and some overlap of common symptoms, it is critical for your laboratory to reliably detect and differentiate between influenza, SARS-CoV-2, Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), Bordetella pertussis, and Pneumocystis jirovecii.

How are you improving your workflow efficiency to maintain timely and accurate differentiation between the plethora of respiratory pathogens?

Targeted, real-time PCR assays

The BD MAX™ System can simultaneously detect and differentiate respiratory pathogens to facilitate a comprehensive response to COVID-19 and RTIs.

This molecular diagnostic platform is fully automated and capable of analysing hundreds of samples over a 24-hour period with less than 1.5 minutes of hands-on time per sample2,3.

The BD MAX™ System can provide your laboratory with:

  • High sensitivity and specificity for targeted detection
  • Timely results for patient management
  • Flexibility of diagnostic testing with a broad menu of respiratory assays compatible with other BD MAX™ assays

Optimise your workflow with rapid and sensitive results obtained across a broad menu of respiratory assays to ensure infection management processes can curb the ever-growing spread of pathogens this season.
