Simultaneously test for two
major viral respiratory infections
The BD SARS-CoV-2/Flu Reagents for BD MAX™ System allows for detection of both SARS-CoV-2 and Flu in a single rapid molecular test
Differentiate between 2 viruses with similar symptoms
From a clinical point of view, Flu and COVID-19 can have overlapping signs and symptoms and hence not be distinguishable without differential diagnostic testing1
Common symptoms of Flu and COVID-19:1
Co-testing for COVID-19 and Flu may help control the spread of both diseases while allowing more tests to be processed in a given time period2
The BD SARS-CoV-2/Flu Reagents for BD MAX™ System is a real-time RT-PCR test designed to detect SARS-CoV-2, Flu A and Flu B in nasal, nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swabs samples from individuals suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider
The assay utilizes multiplexed primers and probes targeting RNA from the nucleocapsid phosphoprotein gene (N1 and N2 regions) of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, and the human RNase P gene
The BD SARS-CoV-2 Reagents for BD MAX™ System is a fully integrated solution to help you achieve clinical efficiency
Simplified and automated workflow
Pre-loaded unitized reagent strips
Run up to 24 samples at a time
Results in about 2 hours
Fast time to result
Supports patient management
COVID-19, coronavirus disease 2019; PCR, polymerase chain reaction; RT-PCR, real time polymerase chain reaction; SARS-CoV-2, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2.
