Abstract: TB has been a Globally affecting disease since ages. So continuous efforts are there for a diagnostic success. By all means conventional microscopy having sensitivity of 36 - 43%.Culture method which is gold standard, which takes 21 days for the result. All microbiological detection only successful when the bacterial load is high. So getting a good quality sample with substantial microbial load is tough. All serological tests are substandard, unreliable & banned. So WHO endorsed XPERT GENE - a real time PCR device for rapid detection.
