Product: GenoType Mycobacterium CM
A test system for the detection of M. tuberculosis complex and differentiation of 27 clinically relevant NTM from cultivated material
Cat No. IM29996A
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 prevention.
There is no current therapeutic standard for nontuberculous mycobacteriosis. The treatment is chosen according to the respective mycobacteria species. Consequently, reliable differentiation between clinically relevant NTM species is important for the therapy regimen.
Starting from a single positive culture, GenoType Mycobacterium CM enables the rapid and reliable differentiation of M. tuberculosis complex and NTM.
