THE DIFFERENCE IS

PUTTING PRECISION
TO WORK


BEFORE. DURING. AND AFTER.

BD MAX™ is your partner in this storm.

Like you, we understand your responsibility to protect patients and communities through these challenging times. It's never been more important to have the support and experience of a trusted partner.

BD is your trusted partner supporting you with molecular diagnostics.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to surge with new cases and hospitalizations. Flu season presents an additional challenge for clinicians in differentiation between these two highly transmissible respiratory viruses. The BD MAX™ System provides molecular testing for the simultaneous detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza A and B*.

SARS-CoV-2 Variants
New variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus have one or more differentiating mutations than the predominant strains already circulating globallyi. These variants are reported in the GISAID genome sequencing database (Global Influenza Surveillance & Response System)ii. WHO and CDC have identified several of these variants as Variants of Concern potentially impacting diagnostics, patient management or risk of disease transmission.

Completed in-silico analysis indicates that the below Variants of Concern have no impact on the BD SARS-CoV-2 Reagents for BD MAX™ System** and BD SARS-CoV-2/Flu for BD MAX™ System*.

BD MAX SARS-CoV-2



SARS-CoV-2 testing**

You can’t identify this virus without a reliable test, but the normal development process can take years. We compressed that process from years to weeks to make sure you had what you needed for this fight. We offer multiple assays:

  • BioGX SARS-CoV-2 Reagents**

  • BD SARS-CoV-2 Reagents**



BD manufacturing






Increased capacity

We are building out manufacturing capacity to expand to nearly double the tests made per week, so you’ll have the supplies you need not only for SARS-CoV-2** but for your other IVD assays.


Experts from around the globe describe the intersection between patient and healthcare worker safety, focusing on techniques to improve both occupational and public health.

Webinar Objectives:

  • Describe the current global impact of bloodborne disease
  • Describe occupational exposure incidents for needlesticks and sharps injuries
  • Define safety as a function of focus for both patient and health worker, to reduce overall bloodborne disease
  • Provide guidance on the importance of prevention programs including use of safer medical devices, immunization/vaccination programs, and safe clinical practices
  • Illustrate an effective pathway for reporting exposure incidents and injuries
  • Define processes for post-exposure medical treatment and prophylaxis
  • Share global experiences from key stakeholders responsible for sharps safety and public health programs around the world

Stability. Expertise. Integrity.

What you look for in a partner today will be just as relevant tomorrow

It will, of course, end. Or at least, diminish. Things will reset to a new normal. Bacterial vaginosis, Salmonella, Clostridioides difficile, and Staphylococcus aureus won’t be going away. And when the dust clears, you want to be standing with a partner you can rely on when things were tough.

We were with you before this all started. We are here for you now. And we will be there when it’s over, with more innovative ways to improve molecular diagnostics.

Efficiency

Labs must juggle competing priorities of increased testing volume while managing costs—all in the midst of a workforce shortage of laboratory professionals.1

The BD MAX™ System can provide results in 90 minutes to 3 hours, with less than 1.5-minute hands-on time per specimen and 15-minutes hands-on time per run2. Individual assay times can vary.
