Book AFB/TB Susceptibility Moxifloxacin (Rapid- MGIT) Test

The AFB/TB Susceptibility: Moxifloxacin (Rapid- MGIT) test is a critical tool in the battle against Tuberculosis (TB), a debilitating infectious disease caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis. This test discerns whether the bacteria in a patient's sample are susceptible or resistant to Moxifloxacin, a vital fluoroquinolone antibiotic used in the management of TB, particularly multi-drug resistant TB (MDR-TB). The insights gleaned from this test enable healthcare professionals to develop tailored, effective treatment strategies.

This susceptibility test employs the MGIT (Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tube) methodology to swiftly determine if M. tuberculosis in a patient's sample is resistant to Moxifloxacin. The prompt and accurate identification of drug resistance is crucial for initiating appropriate treatment, preventing disease transmission, and mitigating the emergence of extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB).

With the escalating global incidence of MDR-TB and XDR-TB, identifying the susceptibility of the TB bacterium to both first-line and second-line anti-TB drugs is of paramount importance. Gaining insights into the bacterium's resistance profile is key to the successful treatment and control of TB.
