GenoScreen TB real time PCR kit

This sensitive, highly specific kit works with various real time PCR machines to quickly detect Mycobacterium Tuberculosis (MTB) complex in clinical specimens. 

What is it?

Accurate detection of tuberculosis
 
This sensitive, highly specific kit works with various real time PCR machines to quickly detect Mycobacterium Tuberculosis (MTB) complex in clinical specimens. 
 
Highly reliable, results from the kit are verified using internal amplification control (IAC) to verify the results 
 
Samples obtained with this assay require no post-PCR manipulation.
 
The cost-effective ready-to-use reagent produces results two hours after extraction.

Who is it for?

This kit is especially valuable to practitioners responsible for the health of populations at risk of tuberculosis. 
 
It is also useful for researchers concerned with TB.

Why is it different?

This fast and cost-competitive test is compatible with a range of real time PCR machines in widespread use.
 
Results are ready two hours after extraction.

Advantages

Fast – Delivers results in approximately 2 hours, tests up to 96 samples simultaneously
Accurate – Reliable ready-to-use reagent
Cost effective – Lowest overall cost in market

Need to know

This is a consumable assay kit, developed, supplied and supported by DiagCor. It requires a compatible instrument and a meticulous MDx workflow.
 
Sputum should be decontaminated and digested by NALC/NaOH method before extraction.
