The GenoType Mycobacterium CM („Common Mycobacteria“) allows the identification of M. tuberculosis complex and differentiation of 27 clinically relevant NTM species. Furthermore, a species-specific probe shows if members of the genus Mycobacterium are present. In this case, further differentiation with GenoType Mycobacterium AS is recommended.
