Schema of common symptoms of Flu and COVID-19


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

  • BD SARS-CoV-2/Flu 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
