For BACTEC(tm) MGIT 960(tm) TB System (Also applicable for Manual MGIT) Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tube
(MGIT) Culture and Drug Susceptibility Demonstration Projects.
Abbreviations: (-)-DPG, (-)-deoxypergularinine; TB, tuberculosis; MDR-TB, multidrug-resistant tuberculosis; XDR-TB, extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis; MGIT, mycobacteria growth indicator tube
; MICs, minimum inhibitory concentrations; INH, isoniazid; TMV, tobacco mosaic virus; MIC, minimum inhibitory concentration; FICIs, fractional inhibitory concentration indices.
Sputum samples are plated on AFB media--one solid medium and one liquid medium called the mycobacteria growth indicator tube
Agreement between methods for antimicrobial susceptibility to Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains isolated in Monteria, Cordoba: mycobacteria growth indicator tube
BACTEC Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tube
(MGIT) 960 system is an automated instrument that has been reliably used for antimicrobial susceptibility testing.
Clinical evaluation of the mycobacteria growth indicator tube
(MGIT] compared with radiometric (BACTEC] and solid media for isolation of mycobacterium species.
The presence of the MDR TB strain was confirmed by the phenotypic antibiogram in a BBL MGIT mycobacteria growth indicator tube
(Becton Dickinson, Franklin Lakes, NJ, USA) after the isolate had been cultured.
tuberculosis from sputum samples using luciferase reporter phage: comparison with the Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tube
The medium used in the Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tube
One such system is the BBL Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tube
(MGIT) (Becton Dickinson, Cockeysville, Md.), which has been available since 1994.
Sputum samples were processed at the Mongolia National Reference TB Laboratory, which used solid cultures (Lowenstein-Jensen medium and Ogawa) and BACTEC Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tube
960 (Becton, Dickinson and Company, Franklin Lakes, NJ, USA) liquid cultures during the study period.
Therefore, this study was undertaken to compare the Auramine-O staining with Ziehl-Neelsen staining and Lowenstein Jensen media with Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tube
for diagnosis of extrapulmonary tuberculosis.
