Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Diagnostic Kit (PCR-Fluorescence Probing)

Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) is a bacterial pathogen that thrives in highly aerobic environments such as the human respiratory system. MTB infects the lungs, causing tuberculosis, which often results in serious or even lethal side-effects. The MTB diagnostic test kit is designed for in vitro quantification of these pathogens with high sensitivity. Detailed clinical study has validated the high specificity, sensitivity, and reproducibility of the kit with analytical sensitivity of 1000 copies/mL in the sample. The kit contains reagents for nucleic acid extraction, realtime-PCR detection and quality control.

Catalogue #: ABI - Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Diagnostic Kit

Principles of the test

The kit has specifically designed primers as well as a composite fluorescent probe thereby allowing utilization of realtime fluorescent PCR. The genetic sequence of MTB can be targeted through realtime-PCR amplification.

Key Features

The kit contains ready-to-use reagents, offers fast real-time detection and provides excellent sensitivity and high specificity. It is also optimized for use in automated liquid handling workstations. By combining this kit with Aurora’s VERSA™ workstations, laboratories can fully automate the amplification process thereby reducing cost and operator error, while increasing efficiency.
