The MeltPro Mycobacteria Identification kit is the ideal kit to identify mycobacterium species responsible for Tuberculosis-like symptoms rapidly. The kit makes it possible to differentiate between 19 clinically relevant mycobacterium species, this ensures the right treatment for the patient.

  • 4 Mycobacterium Tuberculosis species: M. tuberculosis complex, M. bovis, M. nonchromogenicum and M. smegmatis
  • 15 Nontuberculous Mycobacteria species: M. chelonae, M. scrofulaceum, M. abscessus, M. kansasii, M. gordonae, M. haemophilum, M. simiae, M. terrae, M. marinum/M. ulcerans, M. fortuitum, M. avium, M. intracellulare, M. xenopi, M. malmoense and M. szulgai.

The assay is PCR-based on meltcurve interpretation, the combination of different meltcurves will confirm the mycobacterium species present. The workflow from sample to result takes about 2,5-3 hours. The kit is compatible with the LabAid824s extraction device and SLAN 96 qPCR cycler; with the SLAN 96 data will be interpreted automatically.

Ideally, the MeltPro Mycobacteria Identification kit is used in combination with the MeltPro MTB test kits to confirm the possibility of antibiotic resistance. Combination of these kits will optimize the diagnosis and thereby ensure the most efficient treatment for the patient.
