NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Becton Dickinson said today that its BD Max MDR-TB panel has received CE-IVD status and is now available in Europe.

The PCR-based panel is intended to help detect tuberculosis-causing bacteria and determine if the bacteria contains mutations associated with resistance to isoniazid and rifampicin, two important first-line TB drugs.

The assay runs on the BD Max system, a fully integrated and automated molecular diagnostics platform that can run up to 24 samples across multiple tests and provides results for most assays in less than three hours.
