The use of real-time PCR to assay for the presence of M. avium and/or M. intracellulare DNA in clinical specimens allows for rapid patient testing (3 to 4 hours compared to several weeks or more for conventional culture and DNA hybridization) and for distinguishing infections caused by M. tuberculosis or other mycobacterial species.
