|Stability:||Ambient: 3 Day(s); Refrigerated: 7 Day(s); Frozen: Unacceptable; Incubated: Unacceptable|
|Interpretive Data:||Please see report for interpretive data.|
This assay was performed by Cepheid GeneXpert PCR, which detects the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex DNA from concentrated sputum sediments.
Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) complex DNA can be detected from non-viable organisms. It is presumptive for the presence of MTB and Rifampin Resistance.
