Abstract: A single-step, 5-min lysis method was investigated as a rapid technique to extract genomic DNA from mycobacteria for PCR detection of M. tuberculosis directly from clinical specimens. Of 67 smear-positive clinical specimens, 64 (95.5%) were positive by PCR after this rapid extraction method.
