UMB News: UM BioPark Welcomes BD Innovation Center

The University of Maryland BioPark is growing with the official opening of the BD Innovation Center, a state-of-the-art facility which will give students and researchers access to new laboratory space and advanced diagnostic tools.

The Innovation Center at the UM BioPark houses several sophisticated systems, including the BD COR™ PX/GX fully automated diagnostic system for infectious disease molecular testing including cervical cancer genotyping, and the BD MAX™ System, an automated platform that performs nucleic acid extraction and real-time PCR providing results for up to 24 samples across multiple syndromes in less than three hours.

The Center’s goal is to help streamline clinical laboratory workflows and improve patient care by expanding basic diagnostic knowledge, developing new diagnostic capabilities, and shaping the future of diagnostics by allowing students and researchers to provide real-world feedback on early diagnostic concepts.
