The new in vitro diagnostic (IVD) assay will provide laboratories and clinicians the ability to use a single test to detect microorganisms responsible for Bacterial Vaginosis (BV), Candidiasis (CA) and Trichomoniasis (TV), which are the most common infectious causes of vaginitis1.

Vaginal infections are one of the most common infections affecting women’s health, with up to 75 percent of women experiencing at least one case of Vaginitis (CA, TV) or Vaginosis (BV) in their lifetime1,2. Both co-infections (up to 20 percent) and recurring infections are common3,4, resulting in a large disease burden. Pervasive inaccurate and inconsistent diagnosis of these conditions, due in part to variations in clinical practice, leaves up to 30 percent of the women seeking treatment undiagnosed. This can lead to continued symptoms, repeat visits, inappropriate or missed treatment and unnecessary associated healthcare system costs1. In addition to irritating symptoms that disrupt quality of life, these infections have serious risks, including pre-term or low birth-weight babies, late term miscarriage and increased risk of STI transmission or acquisition (including HIV) and Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)1,2,4,5,6.

"The BD MAX Vaginal Panel provides an objective and accurate solution to this incredibly common health issue. This is an important advancement because using traditional methods to detect the responsible microorganisms can be challenging, due to the presence of many interfering substances in specimens, the large number of mixed infections which occur and the subjectivity of these methods, which can lead to inconsistent interpretation of test results,” said Dr. Patrick Murray, worldwide senior director of scientific affairs for BD Life Sciences Diagnostic Systems. “The BD MAX Vaginal Panel has the potential to help clinicians improve patient management and help laboratories increase workflow efficiency.”

The BD MAX™ System (moleculardiagnostics.bd.com) offers an efficient path to improved outcomes by combining and automating real-time PCR extraction, amplification and detection into a single platform capable of running both FDA-cleared and open-system assays.
