Diagnostic Utility of XPERT MTB/RIF in Sputum Negative, Scarce Sputum Patients Using Bal and Gastric Lavage - An Institutional Observational Study

Dr. Trinath Dash [5] | Dr. Athul C. Angaj [2] | Dr. K. Arun Vishnu [6]


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.
