RITA (Mycobacterium tuberculosis) qPCR Detection Kit


Tuberculosis (TB) is caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Tuberculosis is almost always spread by air. The bacteria usually attack the lungs, but TB bacteria can attack any part of the body such as the kidney, spine, and brain. A person with TB can die if they do not get treatment.

More Information

Did you know...?

Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by germs that are spread from person to person through the air. A person with TB can die if they do not get treatment. Symptoms of tuberculosis (TB disease) depend on where in the body the TB bacteria are growing. TB bacteria usually grow in the lungs (pulmonary TB). TB disease in the lungs may cause symptoms such as a bad cough that lasts 3 weeks or longer, pain in the chest, coughing up blood or sputum (phlegm from deep inside the lungs). Other symptoms of TB disease are, weakness or fatigue, weight loss, no appetite, chills, fever, sweating at night. Symptoms of TB disease in other parts of the body depend on the area affected.

How the disease spreads?

Tuberculosis is almost always spread by air. When a patient with tuberculosis of the lungs coughs, the tubercle bacilli can escape with the cough. When other people breathe in these bacteria, you can become infected. These bacteria can get into the lungs or other parts of the body.

How the test is performed?

Virtually 100% certainty is provided by the PCR genetic test. The use of the RT-qPCR technique based on the detection of virus genetic material enables sensitive and specific identification of the pathogen. Genetic material analysis using our reagents is fast and accurate. The reaction is fast. Ready-to-use reagents are included in the kit. It is enough for the lab technician to add each of them in the right proportion and the reaction is ready. Quickly, easily and professionally.

Why is it worth doing a genetic test?

Quick diagnosis will enable the implementation of treatment. Only by means of a genetic test are we able to detect the presence of the pathogen with certainty 100%. Tuberculosis is extremely dangerous. Therefore, a quick diagnosis will help limit its spread.

What can be done after the test result?

If the test is negative and the patient is still looking for what makes him feel sick, it is worth offering him tests for other pathogens. Knowing the source of the disease will facilitate its treatment.
