AccuPower® TB&MDR Real-Time PCR Kit

In vitro diagnostic kit for the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) and multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) DNA in human samples

Ordering Information

Multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) is caused by an organism that is resistant to at least isoniazid (INH) and rifampicin (RIF), the two most potent TB drugs. These drugs are used to treat all persons with TB disease. Spontaneous mutations in the M. tuberculosis genome can give rise to proteins that make the bacterium drug resistant, depending on the drug action. Almost 2~3% of new TB patients have MDR-TB. For the effective treatment of TB and MDR-TB, early detection is the top priority.
