Tissue block for MTB/NTM detection by PCR.

Tissue block for MTB/NTM detection by PCR.

Current data suggest that tissue block can be transported almost without any loss of PCR sensitivity. We have purchased very good kit from Germany to extract DNA from tissue block and trial already given for MTB/NTM detection by running a project. In case where fresh tissue is not available tissue block can be used to detect MTB/NTM. Below are steps we will follow:   Ref: Rapid, Sensitive, and Specific Detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Complex by Real-Time PCR on Paraffin-Embedded Human Tissues (J Mol Diagn 2011, 13:390–394; DOI: 10.1016/j.jmoldx.2011.02.004

However, these organisms are labile in vitro, and precise specimen collection, transportation, and processing conditions are required to maintain organism viability which is necessary for successful culturing. In comparison, nucleic acid amplification by PCR testing provides superior sensitivity and specificity and is now the recommended method for diagnosis in most cases.   Indications fo
