BD and Check-Points Announce Development and Global Distribution Agreement for BD MAX™ Assays

BD announced a development and global distribution agreement with Check-Points for BD MAX™ assays that detect carbapenem-resistant organisms (CRO). As part of the agreement, BD will distribute the Check-Direct CPE Screen for the BD MAX assay (CE IVD) outside of the United States, with Check-Points maintaining exclusivity in the Netherlands. Check-Points and BD plan to develop and commercialize a next-generation CRO assay for launch outside the U.S. in 2017 and in the U.S. at a later time. The Check-Direct CPE Screen for the BD MAX assay is a real time PCR kit for the detection of CRO from rectal swabs. The Check-Direct CPE Screen for the BD MAX identifies and differentiates the presence of the four most common carbapenemase genes: KPC, NDM, VIM and OXA-48-like (including OXA-181 and OXA-232). In three prospective European studies, the assay demonstrated overall clinical sensitivity and specificity of 98.5% and 96.8%, respectively. The Check-Direct CPE Screen for BD MAX assay is the latest offering in the BD MAX HAI portfolio, which includes IVD assays for the qualitative detection of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Staphylococcus aureus and Clostridium difficile (C. difficile). Together with other upcoming products on the BD Phoenix™ platform, BD will offer a comprehensive genotypic and phenotypic CRO solution to support clinical microbiology customers in their antimicrobial resistance programs.
