Check-Points Introduces the CE-IVD BD MAX™ Check-Points CPO Assay
The new CE-IVD registered BD MAX™ Check-Points CPO assay is the latest addition to a portfolio of screening assays for rapid AMR detection on the automated BD MAX™ System. The other Check-Points assay in this portfolio is the Check-Direct ESBL Screen for BD MAX™ detecting ESBLs. Becton Dickinson (BD) markets assays on MRSA, VRE and CDiff for the BD MAX™.
The BD MAX™ Check-Points CPO assay detects the five worldwide most prevalent carbapenemase genes (KPC, OXA-48 like, NDM, VIM and IMP) directly from rectal swabs, in under 2.5 hours turnaround time, and at high sensitivity and specificity compared to traditional plated media methods.
Active molecular screening of high-risk potential CPO carriers allows for faster and more accurate decisions on the isolation or de-isolation of patients, thereby reducing the risk of CPO transmission and outbreaks, plus a reduction in pre-emptive isolation days.
