The innovative direct test for the advanced TB laboratory

FluoroType® MTB VER 1.0 and FluoroType® MTB VER 2.0

Your rapid molecular genetic test system for the detection
of M. tuberculosis complex from direct sample material

FluoroType® MTB is based on the innovative FluoroType® technology enabling the direct detection of M. tuberculosis complex from direct sample material such as decontaminated pulmonary and, depending on the test, extrapulmonary patient samples.

Your Benefits with FluoroType® MTB VER 1.0 und VER 2.0

  • User-friendly procedure: A ready-to-use amplification mix already containing the Taq polymerase is provided with each kit. Amplification and detection run fully automated in a closed system. Evaluation and result interpretation are done by the test-specific software. Thus, hands-on-time is reduced and reliability and user-friendliness is increased.
  • Innovative technology: FluoroType® MTB is based on an innovative fluorescence-based technology enabling fast and reliable results for efficient laboratory diagnostics.
  • Fast results: The test system provides you with reliable results within 3 hours. This allows for an important time advantage in TB diagnostics.
  • Flexibility: You have the choice between an easy manual or automated DNA extraction using the GenoXtract® (only for FT MTB VER 1.0)

Performance features:

* Results may also vary depending on the extraction method chosen
