Bring efficiency to diagnosing
infectious diarrhoea

BD MAX™ Enteric and BD MAX™ Extended Enteric Bacterial Panels are designed to detect over 95% of bacteria that cause infectious diarrhoea1
Choose efficiency
Maximise your impact
Enhance your performance
Benefit from true testing flexibility

BD MAX™ Enteric Solutions offer an effective, time-saving alternative to conventional methods

  • Diagnosing infectious diarrhoea is labour intensive and can take up to 72 hours (or longer) for results
  • BD MAX™ Enteric and Extended Enteric Bacterial Panels are fully integrated on the BD MAX™ System providing the ability to consolidate molecular testing for enteric pathogens
  • Simply snap the Extended Panel into the Enteric Bacterial Panel test strip for extended coverage
  • The BD MAX™ System provides a faster time to result than culture – around 2 hours, with minimal hands-on time2

By adding the Extended Enteric Bacterial Panel to the Enteric Bacterial Panel, your lab can detect over 95% of bacteria that cause infectious diarrhoea1

BD MAX™ Enteric
Bacterial Panel
  • Targets four of the most common pathogens reported in outbreaks of diarrhoea – Campylobacter spp., Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., and Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC).
  • Of these, amongst foodborne bacteria, non-typhoidal Salmonella species are the leading cause of hospitalisation and death.3
BD MAX™ Extended Enteric
Bacterial Panel
  • Targets pathogens that are seasonally and regionally implicated in bacterial gastroenteritis – Vibrio spp., Yersinia entercolitica, Enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC) and Plesiomonas shigelloides.
  • Simply snaps into the Enteric Bacterial Panel test strip, upon request when additional food or waterborne bacteria are suspected or for the immunocompromised patient. Alternatively, this panel may be ordered run for every stool specimen if extended coverage is desired.4

BD MAX™ Enteric and Extended Enteric Bacterial Panels have major benefits compared to conventional stool culture methods

  • More accurate diagnosis and results to aid in appropriate treatment5
  • Reduces consumables related to conventional methods by an average of 60%2
  • Saves space and resources required for processing stool samples by conventional methods
  • Implementation of timely and accurate detection of organisms can improve patient management and antimicrobial stewardship1

You can optimise your testing algorithm by selecting the most appropriate enteric panel(s) based on patient history/clinical presentation
