SETTINGS The new Anyplex™ II MTB/MDR/XDR PCR assay enables the joint analysis of mutations conferring resistance to first- and second-line anti-tuberculosis drugs and the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. OBJECTIVES To evaluate the performance of the new Anyplex assay in detecting mutations that confer resistance to first- and second-line drugs in M. tuberculosis cultures. DESIGN Results obtained using the new technique were compared with those obtained by phenotypic drug… CONTINUE READING
