ID Gene™ Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex Duplex

The ID Gene™ Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex Duplex (IDTUB) kit is a qPCR kit that amplifies a target sequence in the genome of members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC).

This kit is a qualitative Duplex test. It simultaneously amplifies target DNA from member(s) of the MTC (M. tuberculosis, M. bovis, M.africanum, M. microti, M.canetti, M.caprae, and M.pinnipedii) and an exogenous internal control.

This kit may be used to test lymph nodes and peripheral tissues from cattle, sheep, goats, deers, suids and badgers.


  • The most sensitive PCR kit on the market (LDPCR = 1 copy/PCR and LDmethod = 300 UG/mL)
  • Developed according to the requirements of Terrestrial Animal Health Code (OIE) and the French National Reference Laboratory for Tuberculosis (ANSES)
  • Includes ready-to-use reagents, positive controls to evaluate the efficiency of the extraction and amplification steps, and an exogenous internal control
  • The fastest protocol on the market
  • Suitable for use with most extraction systems and all thermocyclers
