Mycobacterium bovis complex / Tuberculosis

ID Gene™ Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex Duplex


Real-time qPCR for the qualitative detection of a sequence in the genome of members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC) in lymph nodes and peripheral tissues

The test amplifies:

  • a target sequence from member(s) of the MTC (M. tuberculosis, M. bovis, M.africanum, M. microti, M.canetti, M.caprae, and M.pinnipedii)
  • an exogenous internal control to be extracted along with field samples, to evaluate extraction efficiency and confirm the absence of inhibitors in each well




  • High performance: (DLPCR = <10 copies / PCR and LDmethod = 300 UG/mL)
  • Rapid: <1 hour amplification protocol
  • Ready-to-use: no-need for reagent pre-mixing – simply dispatch the reaction mix, add the sample and run the test
  • Flexible : uses the same amplification protocol common to all ID Gene™ PCR tests, meaning that other pathogens (DNA or RNA) may be tested on the same plate
  • Developed according to the requirements of Terrestrial Animal Health Code (OIE) and the French National Reference Laboratory for Tuberculosis (ANSES)
