Comparative evaluation of tree commercial diagnostic kits for detection of M. tuberculosis by polymerase chain reaction



Comparative evaluation of tree commercial diagnostic kits for detection of M. tuberculosis by polymerase chain reaction



Klinicheskaia Laboratornaia Diagnostika 2001(1): 54-56



Three Russian commercial PCR diagnostic kits for detection of M. tuberculosis in clinical samples are compared. The kits were evaluated by sensitivity and convenience of analysis. The specificity and sensitivity of Russian diagnostic kits are not inferior to foreign analogs, but are not devoid of some drawbacks.
