TB–DNAsensor Kit

TB-DNAsensor Kit is developed for the diagnosis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB), the causative agent of most cases of tuberculosis (TB). Based on the loop-mediated isothermalamplification (LAMP) technique, two types of test kit are available. TB-DNAsensor Kit I is a chromatographic on membrane for rapid, sensitive and specific MTB detection via amplification of target nucleotide sequences under inexpensive isothermal conditions with interpretation of results within 1.5 hour. TB-DNAsensor Kit II is a high sensitivity, specificity, rapid, low cost and convenient test for the detection of MTB from direct specimen such as sputum. The color change results can be detected from 45 minutes to 1.5 hour after reaction between gold nanoparticle and specific target DNA. Both Kits could be applied in laboratories and epidemiological surveys of MTB.

TB-DNAsensor Kit was developed by Srinakharinwirot University in collaboration with BIOTEC.
