FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., and WAGENINGEN, The Netherlands , June 16, 2016 /PR News wire/ -- BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX ), a leading global medical technology company, today 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 percent and 96.8 percent, respectively. "We have used the Check-Direct CPE Screen for BD MAX in routine screening for nearly two years," said John Rossen, assistant professor of medical microbiology at the University Medical Center, Groningen (UMCG) in the Netherlands and scientific secretary of the ESCMID Study Group for Genomic and Molecular Diagnostics. "The assay on the BD MAX has improved our turn-around-time for CRO screening and has shown a very positive impact in our hospital. " Carbapenem-resistant organisms represent a global healthcare-associated infection (HAI) concern. In 2014, the average carbapenem resistance for K. pneumon IAE in Europe was approximately 7.3 percent, with some countries reporting as high as 62.3 percent.1 Rates of K. pneumoniae resistance to carbapenems range as high as 4-54% in other WHO regions.2 In addition, the spread of CRO represents a unique antimicrobial stewardship challenge, with limited effective treatments3 and mortality rates as high as 54.3 percent4. In response, the European Centers for Disease Control (ECDC)4 have Launched active surveillance programs to as SES s CRO prevalence and monitor for outbreaks. 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. *Product not available for sale in the U.S. About BD BD is a global medical technology company that is advancing the world of health by improving medical discovery, diagnostics and the delivery of care.
