Assay to identify Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex from culture; Genprobe Accuprobe
#2860 or equivalent
Direct identification of gram-positive cocci from routine blood cultures by using AccuProbe
Evaluation of the BACTEC MGIT 960 and the MB/BacT systems for recovery of Mycobacteria from clinical specimens and for species identification by DNA AccuProbe

Mycobacteria were identified by the AccuProbe
rapid nucleic acid hybridization assay (GenProbe, San Diego, CA, USA) previously reported.
Also displaying Accuprobe
, a small, inexpensive gamma backscatter thickness gauge; Minitrack single-sided sensor with XRB laser thickness sensor; and FG 710 gauge running on Accutrak.
This isolate was positive on repeated AccuProbe
testing in our laboratory but did not have the conventional microbiologic characteristics of M tuberculosis (no cording and negative results on tests for niacin and nitrate).
PCR results were compared to conventional smear, culture, and speciation (using the nonamplified GenProbe Accuprobe
method) results generated in the Cook County Hospital Mycobacteriology Laboratory.
The initial development of the AccuProbe
in 1992 provided CMS with market dominance in the modern cryosurgical marketplace.
zooepidemicus to the species level varied between the laboratories, and was performed using at least one of the following tests as shown in Table 1: APIStrep, STR Rapid ID32, or VITEK2 GP-ID (all from bioMerieux Marcy l'Etoile, France), combined with AccuProbe
Group B Streptococcus Culture ID Test (Gen-Probe, San Diego, CA, USA).
