BD Diagnostics, a segment of global medical technology company BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), announced today the availability of the CE-marked BD MAX™ Enteric Parasite Panel for use with the BD MAX System. The BD MAX Enteric Parasite Panel is the latest panel in the BD MAX Enteric suite for the diagnosis of infectious gastroenteritis. This panel joins the BD MAX Enteric Bacterial Panel and the Diagenode™ Enteric Viral Panel primers and probes kit that is used with the BD MAX RNA 3 extraction kit to detect gastrointestinal pathogens. With the availability of the BD MAX Enteric Parasite Panel, the majority of pathogens causing this disease can be detected with a fully automated, rapid and accurate platform.

The BD MAX Enteric Parasite Panel is a qualitative IVD test detecting DNA from Giardia lamblia, Cryptosporidium (C. hominis and C. parvum) and Entamoeba histolytica in stool specimens, both unpreserved and formalin-fixed (10%). These pathogens represent commonly isolated and highly pathogenic organisms. Results from this assay are available in approximately 4 hours, require minimal technologist time, and may replace traditional methods such as microscopy and immunoassay which can be complex, labor intensive and inaccurate.

“We continue to expand the BD MAX System menu and open system capabilities. Full automation and standardized workflow will enable laboratories to consolidate a broad range of molecular tests to meet their current and future clinical needs,” said Doug White, Vice President and General Manager, Molecular Diagnostics & Women’s Health, BD Diagnostics. “BD’s suite of enteric assays will allow flexibility for specific testing needs based on patient and clinical presentation, enabling more efficient patient management and laboratory processes.”

Globally, there are approximately 1.7 billion cases of diarrhea accounting for more than 2 million deaths annually. Children less than 5 years of age are particularly at risk with around 760,000 deaths each year. [i] These infections may be caused by viruses, bacteria or parasites and often take two to three days or more to identify in the clinical laboratory using conventional methods. Infections caused by the parasites Giardia and Cryptosporidia, while relatively common, may be subject to under diagnosis and reporting in Europe.[ii]

The BD MAX Systemoffers a highly efficient path to improved clinical outcomes through flexible molecular solutions. In the laboratory, the BD MAX System automates sample preparation, extraction, amplification and detection on a single system, saving time and improving lab efficiency. Molecular testing on the BD MAX System is simplified and standardized, eliminating variability in results. Menu options include both CE marked assays and Open System Reagents that are used for user defined protocols.

In addition to panels detecting enteric parasite, viral and bacterial pathogens, other BD MAX enteric panels are in development for the qualitative detection of additional viral and bacterial pathogens directly from stool specimens in patients with signs and symptoms of gastroenteritis and/or colitis.
