MAKE THE MAX DIFFERENCE FOR YOUR LAB, PRACTITIONERS AND PATIENTS
Today’s laboratories face many challenges, including staff recruitment and retention, cost-containment pressures, increasing test volumes and diagnostic inaccuracies.
MEET THE BD MAX™
The BD MAX™ System is a fully-integrated, automated platform that performs nucleic acid extraction and real-time PCR providing results for up to 24 samples across multiple syndromes in less than three hours*. The BD MAX System is designed to help address today’s challenges, while preparing your laboratory for tomorrow’s possibilities.
Goal: Optimizing workflow to improve care
The BD MAX can:
Raise staff productivity through automation1
Leverage a versatile menu and streamlined workflow to reduce total cost2-4
Improve turnaround time for fast, appropriate treatment decisions2,3,5,6
*Time to result for 24 samples tested with BD MAX™ Enteric Parasite Panel and BD MAX™ Extended Enteric Bacterial Panel is 4.5 hours and 3.5 hours, respectively.
