Detection and identification of Mycobacteria species, Nocardia species and other aerobic actinomycetes
Identification is performed using the Hologic/GenProbe AccuProbes for selected Mycobacteria species, MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry, or 500 base pair 16S rRNA gene sequencing.
Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex species identification can be done upon request using rapid PCR targeting the regions of difference (RD) genomic areas.
