MDx-Chex for BCID2 is a patient-like full process control designed to validate the entire analytical process of the BIOFIRE BCID2 Panel, including cell lysis, DNA extraction, purification and removal of PCR inhibitors in addition to qPCR amplification, detection and analysis. MDx-Chex for BCID2 covers all targets tested on the BIOFIRE BCID2 Panel: 43 bacteria, yeasts and antimicrobial resistance gene targets packaged in two separate vials, one for Gram (-) bacteria and one for the Gram (+) bacteria and yeasts. Microorganisms are intact, inactivated and suspended in a matrix of stabilized red blood cells, white blood cells and blood culture media components, providing you with a control that can be mixed and pipetted like a positive patient sample, reducing the risk of cross-contamination, pipetting errors or other pre-analytical variables that may cause incorrect results.
