Product Description

AFB diagnostics routinely relies on a basic digestion-decontamination and neutralization process to eliminate non-mycobacterial organisms from tested samples. Although an elevated pH will kill other organisms first, mycobacteria will quickly succumb if exposed to this basic environment for too long. Alpha-Tec Systems’ Mycobacteriology System has improved the ability of laboratories to recover accurate positive AFB specimens and reduce the occurrence of contaminated / reprocessed samples by rigidly controlling pH throughout the specimen preparation process.
