MTC/NTM Detection Kit

MTC/NTM Detection Kit

Description

Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) is a species of pathogenic bacteria and the causative agent in most cases of tuberculosis. Along with MTB, 5 other species, which we call MTC, are considered common infectious agents that cause tuberculosis. That is why it is necessary to detect MTC, along with MTB. Although NTM is a group of mycobacteria unrelated to tuberculosis, it usually causes pulmonary infections that mimic tuberculosis, resulting in possible misdiagnosis. Therefore, identification of a single infection or co-infection of MTC and NTM is required for adequate treatment.
