Expand diagnostic testing

Diagnostic tests classify infections and guide therapies, enabling clinicians to implement effective antimicrobial stewardship interventions. BD platforms provide diagnostic results to help rapidly respond to major drug-resistant threats highlighted by the World Health Organization, CDC and the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Sample acquisition

Improve sample quality and protect specimen integrity by properly acquiring and managing samples for testing.

  • Urine specimen management
  • Blood draw

Accurate patient screening

Reduce the risk of HAIs by efficiently identifying patients colonized with resistant organisms.

  • Automated molecular diagnostic systems
  • Prepared plated media for isolation of selected organisms
  • Automated preparation and screening for plated media

Rapid detection and identification
of infectious agents

Guide therapy and prevent unnecessary antimicrobial use by identifying the cause of infection.

  • Point-of-care diagnostic testing
  • Identification systems
  • Automated culture systems
  • Laboratory automation with microbial imaging applications

Precise susceptibility testing

Optimize the patient treatment plan by determining the specific antimicrobials that inhibit or kill particular bacteria.

  • Automated susceptibility testing systems
  • Antimicrobial susceptibility test discs
  • Automated liquid culture and drug susceptibility testing for tuberculosis
