GENE Xpert Test is the commonly used platform for performing CBNAAT. It detects the presence of Myobacterium tuberclosis within 2 hrs. It also gives you additional information whether the mycobacteria is sensitive or resistant to Rifampicin.

It can be used on sputum samples, gastric aspirates and pus. It can also be used on pleural, peritoneal fluid and CSF but the yield is found to be low.
