Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. TB typically infects lungs (Pulmonary tuberculosis) but may also infect other parts of body (Extrapulmonary tuberculosis) such as central nervous system, lymphatic system and genitourinary system. Symptoms of the disease are fever, night sweat, chronic cough, blood-tinged sputum. According to a data published by World Health Organization (WHO), in 2012 around 8.6 million people were diagnosed with tuberculosis while 1.3 million died with the disease. Various Multi Drug Resistant (MDR) forms of the Mycobacterium have been identified which make the treatment more difficult as the routine drugs cannot be used to treat the disease. Identification of the disease in early stages helps in effective treatment hence various rapid identification tests are performed for diagnosis. TB tests are performed in hospitals as well as in research laboratories which constitute a large market across the globe.
