CONCLUSION: The collection and storage of sputum on filter paper at room temperature for 5 days had no apparent effect on the performance of nested PCR. Sputum samples collected by this method could be sent by post in a minimum of space and inexpensive way and will enable a large number of samples collected in the field or from peripheral health centers to be sent to central laboratories for analysis by trained technicians and under a well-equipped and well-established quality control system. The rapid and reliable detection by PCR-based assay will be helpful for optimal patient management of therapy and effective control of tuberculosis.
