MTB DNA Qualitative


The MTB DNA Qualitative test, employing Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) method, detects the presence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) DNA in patient samples. This sensitive diagnostic tool aids in confirming tuberculosis (TB) infection, particularly in cases where other methods yield inconclusive results. By detecting MTB DNA, this test provides rapid and accurate diagnosis, facilitating timely initiation of treatment and infection control measures. It’s crucial for early identification and management of TB, reducing transmission and disease burden.
