The Xpert MTB/RIF – a rapid, fully-automated nucleic acid amplification test – is the first major breakthrough in tuberculosis diagnostics 
To take the new test, patients produce a sputum specimen (fluid coughed up from the lungs) just as they do for microscopy and culture diagnostic methods. The specimen is mixed with a reagent and the mixture is put into the cartridge which is inserted into a module in the machine. The results are called up on a computer screen.

El método Xpert MTB/RIF es una prueba de amplificación del ácido nucleico totalmente automatizada que emplea un cartucho para diagnosticar la tuberculosis y la resistencia a la rifampicina, apropiada para los países donde ésta enfermedad es endémica.
En la actualidad, este método es el único de su tipo que emplea un cartucho en el que están contenidos todos los elementos necesarios para la reacción, incluidos los reactivos liofilizados, amortiguadores líquidos y soluciones de lavado.
