Performance assessment of the DR. TBDR/NTM IVD kit for direct detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates, including rifampin-resistant isolates, and nontuberculous Mycobacteria.


We evaluated the performance of the DR. TBDR/NTM IVD kit, which was designed to detect Mycobacterium tuberculosis, rifampin-resistant M. tuberculosis, and nontuberculous mycobacteria, for detecting 110 positive and 50 negative cultures in Mycobacterium Growth Indicator Tubes. The accuracy rate of this kit for identification of Mycobacterium species was 95.5… (More)
