Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MBTC)

Tuberculosis, is a common and potentially lethal infectious disease caused by various strains of mycobacteria, usually Mycobacterium tuberculosis in humans. Tuberculosis usually attacks the lungs but can also affect other parts of the body. Most infections in humans result in an asymptomatic, latent infection and about one in ten latent infections eventually progresses to active disease. The classic symptoms are a chronic cough with blood-tinged sputum, fever, sweats and weight loss.

As samples for PCR diagnostics can be used broncho-alveolar lavage and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid, liquor, sputum, urine, whole blood, pleural fluid, tissue, paraffine blocks  and environmental samples. For DNA extraction from synovial fluid is necessary to use Mucolysin reagent.

M. tuberculosis complex PCR kits detect in qualitative format also other TB-causing mycobacteria: M. bovis, M. pinnipedii, M. africanum, M. microti and M. canetti.

UDG is used for preventing of contamination in Real-Time and FEP PCR kits. All kits contain Internal Control for checking of the isolation process of each individual sample and for identification of possible reaction inhibition.

For detection, 2 channels - FAM/Green and JOE/Yellow/HEX are needed.
