AbstractSince the emergence of multidrug-resistant and extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis, there has been a call for a rapid assay to detect rifampicin-resistant strains that can be implemented into a routine service to analyse all strains in a specific geographical location. Denaturing HPLC (dHPLC) is a rapid screening test that can detect mutations in PCR amplicons. The aim of this study was to evaluate the dHPLC analysis of rifampicin-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates using an extensive strain collection from Hong Kong and the UK and a collection of 84 consecutive clinical isolates.
