for viral gastroenteritis testing

BD MAX™ Enteric Viral Panels include targeted testing for Norovirus and Rotavirus or extended coverage with Adenovirus, Sapovirus and Astrovirus

BD MAX™ Enteric Viral and Viral-NR Panels offer precise testing and more

  • Globally, Norovirus is estimated to be the most common cause of acute gastroenteritis – responsible for 685 million cases every year of which 200 million are among children younger than 5 years old, leading to an estimated 50,000 child deaths every year, mostly in developing countries1
  • Rotaviruses are the most common cause of severe diarrhoeal disease in young children throughout the world2
  • Molecular testing with BD MAX™ Enteric Viral panel provides results in several hours for same day decisions on patient management and transmission risk
  • BD MAX™ Enteric Viral and Viral-NR Panels are fully integrated on the BD MAX™ System providing the ability to consolidate molecular testing for enteric pathogens
