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.

gb Easy PCR Master Mix consists of hot-start Taq DNA polymerase, reaction buffer, dNTP and MgCl2. Taq polymerase is chemically modified DNA polymerase from Thermus aquaticus. This polymerase is completely inactive at room temperature but it is rapidly activated during the initial denaturation step of PCR.
