Amirpayvand Research and Development Company (AP-RAD) with the aim of rapid, sensitive and specific identification of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC) and non-tuberculosis mycobacterium (NTM) in sputum samples, bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL), body fluids and preparation of pathological paraffin blocks from For patients with symptoms or suspicion of MTC or NTM infections, a multiplex kit has been designed and manufactured. Mycobacteria cause various diseases such as tuberculosis (TB), which is still a major global health problem and leads to significant mortality. In addition, the global prevalence of NTM has increased in both developed and developing countries. The infection caused by NTM is clinically indistinguishable from tuberculosis and creates important challenges in patient treatment, especially patients who are chronically treated for pulmonary tuberculosis. Since mycobacteria have a different spectrum of disease severity as well as different sensitivity to antibiotics, rapid diagnosis and identification of mycobacterial species in the early stages is essential for patient management and infection control. The AP-RAD multipurpose PCR kit is intended for use by qualified clinical and research laboratories in the field of real-time PCR techniques and laboratory diagnostic methods.
