Mycobacterium tuberculosis gene detection (PCR)

Mycobacterium tuberculosis has a long incubation period in vitro, and the positive detection rate is not high. Therefore, it has certain difficulties in early clinical diagnosis and drug treatment. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology is used to detect Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It greatly provides the detection rate and detection specificity of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which is conducive to clinical timely treatment. Specimens were collected from patients' sputum, bronchial secretions, cerebrospinal fluid, pericardial effusion, pleural effusion, and chest and ascites.
