BD MAX Molecular Diagnostic Testing System

SKU: 3369986


1 in stock


The BD MAX System is intended for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) use in performing FDA cleared or approved nucleic acid testing in clinical laboratories. The BD MAX is capable of automated extraction and purification of nucleic acids from multiple specimen types, as well as the automated amplification and detection of target nucleic acid sequences by fluorescence-based PCR.

**The BD Prewarm Heater and Monitor pictured is included with this BD MAX System

  • The BD Pre-warm heater P/N 442950 is intended to pre-warm patient samples according to assay-specific, instrument-defined protocols for use with BD instrument systems.
The BD MAX System is capable of:
  • Independent nucleic acid extraction and purification
  • PCR amplification using thermal cycling across 24 lanes
  • Real time detection of products of amplification
  • Identification of each Sample Buffer tube by external barcode reader
  • Work List verification by internal barcode reader
  • Fluorescence detection at up to five wavelengths, allowing multiplex reactions by Cycle threshold (Ct) call, or multiplex reactions by melt analysis
  • Qualitative, quantitative and melt sample analysis
  • Integrated and fully-automated extraction and thermocycling steps
  • Processes and analyzes up to 24 specimens per run
  • On-board lysis and extraction with pre-filled reagent strips
  • Real-time PCR with two 24-lane microfluidic PCR readers
  • Dedicated multi-color optics including: 475/520, 530/565, 585/630, 630/665, 680/715
  • Consistent results through standardized workflow and protocols
  • Rapidly expanding menu and open-system options to help address emerging testing needs
  • Less than one minute of hands on time per sample
  • CLIA Moderately complex and easy to use
  • All-in-One computer contains instrument software that is responsible for instrument control, self-calibration, data analysis and storage
  • User interface can be navigated with point-and-click icons (keyboard and mouse), or the Computer’s touchscreen
Modules included:
  • Temperature control/heating subsystem to control thermal cycling
  • A liquid handling head to transfer samples from Sample Buffer tubes to Unitized Reagent Strips
  • Onboard readers to measure the amplification reaction and report results
Software/user interface allows for:
  • 24 unique thermal cycling channels per system (two onboard readers)
  • Entering patient/sample information, either manually or by external barcode reader
  • Monitoring operations, communication and storing of data
  • Qualitative, quantitative and melt sample analysis
  • Error warnings
  • Download of results to a USB thumb drive
  • LIS connectivity
