Detection method: quantitative real-time PCR

The kit is intended for detection and DNA quantification of bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis by real-time PCR method.

Clinical implications

Mycobacterium tuberculosis is an obligate aerobic acid resistant rod-shaped bacterium which causes most of the cases of tuberculosis. The term Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex includes closely related bacteria causing the same clinical symptoms – M. tuberculosis, M. bovis, M. africanum, M. microti and M. canetti. Tuberculosis still remains a serious infectious disease, namely because of the rising occurrence of antituberculosis drug resistance and because of the increasing proportion of immunocompromised individuals in the human population, although a sophisticated system of inoculation and prevention exists.

Parameters of the diagnostic kit

gb OneStep RT-qPCR Kit

gb OneStep RT-qPCR Kit gb OneStep RT-qPCR Kit

gb OneStep RT-qPCR Kit is intended for reverse transcription (RT) and real-time PCR (qPCR) performed in one step (in one reaction), i.e. onestep RT-qPCR. No additional instrumentation is required; the onestep RT-qPCR analysis can be performed directly on any real-time PCR cycler simply by adding a thermal step for reverse transcription prior to a PCR amplification.
