BD MAXTM rack setup

  • Position 1: DNA extraction BD Exk-1 Reagent tube (white seal)
  • Position 2: leave empty
  • Position 3: ESBL Screen reagent tube (orange seal) +12.5 μl CP Mastermix (included in kit)

Please note: BD MAX DNA MMK Master Mix (Ref: 442848) is not compatible for use with Check-Direct ESBL Screen for BD MAXTM.

Proceed with the BD MAXTM instrument setup, as specified in the user manual.


Please refer to the full protocol in the user manual when performing this assay.

Run in parallel with Check-Direct CPE Screen for BD MAXTM

Detect ESBLs and carbapenemases simultaneously. Check-Direct ESBL Screen for BD MAXTM and Check-Direct CPE Screen for BD MAXTM can by run side by side in the same rack.

Test rectal swabs directly

Identify ESBL carriers in specific risk groups. Check-Direct ESBL Screen for BD MAXTM is performed directly from rectal swabs.

Identify the ESBL type

Detect the most clinically prevalent ESBLs. Information on the type of ESBL present  – CTX-M-1 group, CTX-M-2 group, CTX-M-9 group and SHV ESBL – yields extra information for epidemiology.

End unnecessary patient isolation sooner

Rapid and accurate results help you end unnecessary patient isolation sooner. Stay up-to-date, stay in control.
