Effective testing at the point of care
The BD Veritor™ Plus System offers what your organization needs to conduct antigen testing for respiratory infections and can help you successfully implement a reliable diagnostic testing program.
COVID‑19 (SARS‑CoV‑2)* rapid antigen testing
BD Veritor™ Plus System
Used as part of a comprehensive coronavirus mitigation program, fast, easy-to-use testing for SARS-CoV-2 (the novel or new coronavirus that causes COVID-19) provides health care workers information they can use to actively detect the virus and decrease the likelihood of spread.
What is COVID‑19?
There are seven known human coronaviruses¹. SARS-CoV-2, more commonly referred to as COVID-19, is a novel or new virus which means a person's immune system has not been exposed to it yet. SARS-CoV-2 is the coronavirus that caused the COVID-19 pandemic².
In COVID-19, the name reflects the following:²

Why rapid point-of-care testing matters
As the global healthcare community searches for effective methods for addressing COVID-19, the important role of testing is becoming more apparent. There are currently two kinds of testing available for SARS-CoV-2: diagnostic testing that detects either genetic material (RNA) or proteins (antigens) from the infecting virus, and antibody testing that detects the body’s immune response to infection (antibodies).
The BD Veritor™ Plus System provides simple and reliable rapid antigen testing at the point-of-care.
Types of respiratory diagnostic testing
Rapid antigen test
Detects proteins (antigens) from the infecting virus
Molecular diagnostic (PCR) test
Detects genetic material (RNA) from the infecting virus
Detects the body’s immune response to infection (antibodies)
BD Veritor™ System for Rapid Detection of SARS‑CoV‑2*

How to perform COVID‑19 testing with the BD Veritor™ Plus System*
The BD Veritor™ System for Rapid Detection of SARS‑CoV‑2* antigen test detects proteins from the SARS‑CoV‑2 virus. A nasal swab is used to collect the specimen from a patient suspected of having COVID‑19. The sample is prepared, added to the assay cartridge, incubated and then interpreted by the Analyzer.
