INTROL TB Panel M114plus is intended for use as a quality control to monitor the nucleic acid detection of M. tuberculosis (MTB) and the mutations associated with multi-drug resistant MTB (MDR-TB) on the GeneXpert® System.
The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that about 1.7 billion people, 23% of the world’s population, are estimated to have a latent TB infection, and are thus at risk of developing active TB disease during their lifetime.1 There has been major progress in subsequent years – more than 60 million people have been documented as treated and cured since 2000, and case and death rates have fallen steadily. Nevertheless, worldwide, around 10 million people still fall ill with the disease each year (more adults than children, and more men than women), and TB is one of the top 10 causes of death. It is also the leading cause of death from a single infectious agent, ranking above HIV/AIDS.2
INTROL TB Panel M114plus is provided for Research Use Only (RUO). It cannot be cloned, sold, or transferred without the explicit written consent of MMQCI.
