The BD MAX™ System is designed to reduce the time, complexity and overall cost of molecular testing.
Learn about BD Max™ System Technology
|BD MAX™ System*
The BD MAX™ System is a next generation platform for molecular testing automating cell lysis, nucleic acid extraction, PCR set-up, amplification and detection. The BD MAX™ System is designed to provide maximum flexibility, efficiency and scalability for molecular testing.
|BD MAX™ GBS Assay
The BD MAX™ GBS assay is an in vitro diagnostic test for the detection of group B Streptococcus DNA in Lim Broth cultures obtained from vaginal/rectal swab specimens from antepartum pregnant women. The assay is performed on the BD MAX™ System, which automates cell lysis, nucleic acid extraction, PCR set-up, amplification and detection. It is the only fully automated IVD method for PCR detection of GBS from Lim Broth cleared by the FDA.
|BD MAX™ Open System Reagents
BD MAX™ Open System Reagents enable laboratories to standardize and automate user defined protocols. Laboratories can individually program and automate user defined thermocycling and analysis protocols for multiple analytes and targets. Sample lysis and extraction only protocols and PCR only protocols can also be performed.
* BD MAX System cleared for use with the BD MAX GBS Assay. BD MAX System cleared or approved by FDA only when used with BD MAX IVD assays which have been cleared or approved by the FDA. Functions supporting user defined protocols on the BD MAX Open System are not cleared or approved by the FDA.
