Achieve maximum impact
in testing for SARS-CoV-2

The BD SARS-CoV-2 Reagents for BD MAX™ System provides rapid molecular testing on nasal, nasopharyngeal, oropharyngeal swab samples and saliva specimens of SARS-CoV-2 in about 2 hours for both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients

Help manage the pandemic
Maximise performance

Ability to test ample portions of the symptomatic and asymptomatic population, do contact tracing and enforce isolation of those who have been infected is key for containing the spread of SARS-CoV-21

  • The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact Europe as countries work to manage testing and transmission control of this infectious virus
  • New! With saliva samples now approved for use on BD SARS-CoV-2 Reagents for BD MAX™ System, it offers a non-invasive alternative for COVID-19 specimen collection
  • New! Any need to detect and differentiate variants within a SARS-CoV-2 positive result? CerTest VIASURE SARS-CoV-2 Variant Real Time PCR Detection Kit for BD MAX™ can be used as a reflex test to identify the 3 variants of concern: B.1.1.7 (Alpha), B.1.351 (Beta), and P.1 (Gamma)
