Salmonella spp. – Shigella spp. – Campylobacter spp. (jejuni and coli) Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC)
Hospitals and laboratories are faced with increasing challenges in managing clinician and patient needs. In the microbiology laboratory, diagnosing gastroenteritis caused by bacteria is demanding as the stool bench requires a high level of technologist expertise and labor with multiple testing methods extending the time to result up to 4 days or more.
Clinicians require these results in a more rapid time frame in order to accurately manage patients suffering from disease caused by these bacteria. In patients with STEC, administering antimicrobial therapy is contra-indicated and may cause adverse reactions, increasing the risk of hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) which can have a high mortality rate.
BD MAX Enteric Bacterial Panel provides results in <3 hours once the specimen is loaded into the system. In the laboratory, the reduction of multiple methods, expertise and labor required to perform testing is achieved.
The BD MAX Enteric Bacterial Panel detects approximately 95% of bacteria causing infectious gastroenteritis.
