BAX® System PCR Testing

Detect pathogens quickly and accurately with the power of PCR.

The BAX® System uses Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) to detect a target organism’s DNA – the gold standard for identification that is highly stable and conserved within a species. Carefully designed primers contained within the BAX® System assays target specific genetic sequences possessed only by the target organism, eliminating cross reactivity and expensive false-positive results.
