Cat.No.: TB 411/412
The One Step Rapid TB Test is a chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of antibodies to M. tuberculosis in human serum. This test is intended for professional use as an aid in the detection of antibodies against M. tuberculosis in human serum, whole blood or plasma. Three specially selected TB recombinant proteins are used in test band as capture materials and gold conjugates. These enable the Rapid TB Test to identify antibodies to TB in human serum, whole blood or plasma, with a high degree of accuracy.
SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION:
Tuberculosis is a highly infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis and potentially fatal disease of human. It is passed almost exclusively by aerosol transmission from the respiratory secretions of diseased patients to their contacts. Tuberculosis affects especially the lungs and more than 80% of all cases of tuberculosis were limited to the lungs. Morbidity of tuberculosis has been decreasing but recently HIV –associated tuberculosis and multi-drug resistant tuberculosis are on the rise. It’s not easy to detect TB disease at the beginning of infection since there are few symptoms. Tuberculin skin test or chest X-ray can be used to screen TB. However, these methods require complex procedures or may not confirm that a person has TB disease. Serologic test can overcome these disadvantages with its simple and rapid method.
