ATCC Mycobacterium tuberculosis DNA - New!

Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent of tuberculosis, is a highly contagious, aerobic bacterium transmitted between humans through aerosolized sputum. Currently, molecular-based assays, such as DNA fingerprinting and PCR, are routinely used in the analysis and surveillance of M. tuberculosis infections. However, as these strains grow slowly, dividing every 15-20 hours, it can be weeks before DNA is successfully extracted from a culture.

To meet these needs, ATCC now offers M. tuberculosis DNA preparations for use as positive control materials in molecular applications. Each vial contains at least 2 µg of purified DNA that can be easily handled in a BSL 1 facility.
