HUBBARD, Ohio, April 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A well-respected, independent, third-party laboratory has tested for Tuberculosis (TB) using NanoLogixBNP (BioNanoPore) test kits and achieved the detection of live TB colonies in 4 to 5 days. Standard culture times for conventional technologies take a minimum of 16 to 21 days to achieve similar results. In concurrent tests for TB at the same facility, using Nanologix BNF (BioNanoFilter) test kits, Antibody/Antigen TB-specific test results were obtained in 1 hour 30 minutes. For research and publication purposes, all test results were confirmed with PCR. Comprehensive results of these independent tests are currently undergoing editing for publication in a major peer-reviewed, scientific journal.
