Molecular confirmation of CPE provides fast and accurate gene identification of suspected clinical samples. The results can guide infection control programs to limit the spread of these organisms.

Check-Direct CPE for BD MAX

Easy automated confirmation of CPE with the BD MAX

(ref 278101)

Covers the clinically most prevalent carbapenemases – KPC, OXA-48, VIM and NDM – including the emerging OXA-181 variant.

  • Confirm CPE in routine suspected isolates: detect KPC, OXA-48, VIM and NDM, including OXA-181.
  • Identify the carbapenemase type: receive extra information for infection control and epidemiology.
  • Pre-aliquoted dried-down reagents ensure a fast and simple testing procedure – just snap in and start.
