BD and Diagenode Collaborate to Expand Infectious Disease Menu on the BD MAX™ System
Date:5/9/2011

BALTIMORE and LIEGE, Belgium, May 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- BD Diagnostics, a segment of global medical technology company BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX), and Diagenode SA, an international biotech company based in Belgium, announced today an agreement to co-develop seven initial molecular diagnostic assays on the BD MAX™ System for pathogens associated with respiratory, enteric and central nervous system diseases.  

"Our agreement with Diagenode represents the first milestone in BD's strategy to make BD MAX System an indispensible clinical laboratory tool that empowers laboratory professionals to provide rapid, accurate test results to clinicians needing the best information to make critical treatment decisions," said Tom Polen, President of BD Diagnostics - Diagnostic Systems.  "By collaborating with leading IVD developers, such as Diagenode, we intend to build a growing, content-rich menu of clinically relevant assays that will allow laboratories to meet ever-changing clinical needs."

Under this agreement, Diagenode will begin developing seven initial CE-marked assays for the BD MAX System, using its open system capability.  These initial assays will include a respiratory panel for diagnosing respiratory infections, two panels for diagnosing virus- and parasite-based gastrointestinal infections and a panel for differentially diagnosing meningitis.  BD plans to fully integrate these in vitro diagnostic (IVD) assays onto the BD MAX platform and ultimately assume responsibility for manufacturing and commercializing the tests globally.

"We are pleased that BD is leveraging our expertise in infectious disease diagnostics. The versatility of BD MAX will enable us to readily adapt our assays on a fully automated molecular platform," said Didier Allaer, CEO of Diagenode.

According to Polen, BD plans to bring new a
