AccuPower® TB&MDR Real-Time PCR Kit
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.
The AccuPower® TB&MDR Real-Time PCR Kit is an in vitro diagnostic kit designed for the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis
(MTB) and MDR-TB DNA in human samples such as sputum, bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) and urine through real-time PCR using ExiStation™ Molecular Diagnostic
System or Exicycler™ 96.
