The Cobas TaqMan MTB assay is used for rapid detection of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC) in clinical samples. It is only validated for respiratory samples, but is often requested by physicians for non-respiratory specimens. The aim of this study was therefore to evaluate the performance of this assay in clinical praxis in a country with low prevalence of tuberculosis (TB).
