Bioline™ TB Ag MPT64 is a immunochromatographic identification test for the M. Tuberculosis complex. Biochemical, immunological and molecular biological characterization of Mycobacterium tuberculosis has led to the identification of several antigens which may be useful in the development of improved diagnostic methods in order to discriminate between the M. tuberculosis complex and mycobacteria other than M. tuberculosis (MOTT bacilli). M. tuberculosis has been known to secrete more than 33 different proteins. One of the predominant proteins, MPT64 was found in the culture fluid of only strains of the M. tuberculosis complex.
