Product: GenoType CMdirect
A test system for the detection of M. tuberculosis complex and differentiation of more than 20 clinically relevant NTM directly from patient specimens.
Cat No. IM295R
The members of M. tuberculosis complex are considered to cause tuberculosis. In contrast, the group of nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) comprises numerous species that are mostly less pathogenic. However, there are some NTM that can cause certain diseases. Thus, the differentiation of tuberculosis (TB) pathogens and NTM plays an important role for diagnostics, treatment and infection prevention.
Starting from sputum specimens, GenoType CMdirect allows for the rapid and reliable differentiation of M. tuberculosis complex and NTM.
