    D MAX SARS-COV-2 REAGENT 445003
    Urgent medical device defect correction

    BD have received reports of false positive results when using the BD SARS-CoV-2 Reagents with the BD MAX System predominantly on the N2 target.

    The low N2 threshold of 50 Relative Fluorescence Units (RFU) was not adequate. BD has revised and has updated the threshold for the N2 target in the instructions for use (IFU) from 50 RFU to 80 RFU.
