Tuberculosis is a difficult disease to treat, a process made more harder as tools to monitor treatment response only provide a result long after the patient has provided a sample. The mycobacterial load assay (MBLA) provides a simple molecular test to quantify and determine the viability of M. tuberculosis in human or other samples.
