The BD MAX? system offers you an efficient path to improved clinical outcomes by combining and automating extraction and thermocycling into a single platform capable of running both FDA-cleared and open system assays. Flexibility and standardization allow you to address the breadth of your testing needs.


The system provides highly sensitive and specific results through real-time PCR technology, and consistent results through standardized workflow and protocols.

Improved outcomes

Rapidly expanding menu and open system options help you address emerging testing needs.


The system is capable of running multiple specimen types and assays in a single run.


The system provides onboard lysis and extraction with pre-filled reagent strips, requiring less than one minute of hands-on time per sample.


The system features integrated and fully automated extraction and thermocycling steps.

Ease of use

The system is CLIA moderately complex and easy to use.


The system is capable of running both FDA-cleared and open system assays.

Used for in vitro diagnostic testing for direct, qualitative detection
