All enrolled index case-patients and household contacts evaluated for active TB were assessed by sputum smear microscopy with Ziehl-Neelsen staining and culture on solid Lowenstein-Jensen medium
Comparison of the Automated Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tube System (BACTEC 960/MGIT) with Lowenstein-Jensen medium
for recovery of mycobacteria from clinical specimens.
The material needs to be processed for bacilloscopy, culture in Lowenstein-Jensen medium
, and BACTEC technique.
They compared the results of the assay to those based on the absolute drug concentration method in Lowenstein-Jensen medium
Materials and Methods: Antituberculosis drug susceptibility testing of 50 MDR-TB isolates particularly for SLDs, namely p-aminosalicylic acid, ciprofloxacin, amikacin, d-cycloserine, kanamycin, and ethionamide, was conducted on solid Lowenstein-Jensen medium
using the 1% proportion sensitivity method.
Lot 4 - Supply of Food Lowenstein-Jensen medium
, ready for use in a test tube with screw cap with gasket with written expiry date on each tube.
The sputa of sputum smear negative cases were inoculated on Lowenstein-Jensen medium
culture medium to isolate the organism and correlate the culture positivity and negativity in smear negative cases.
the Mycobacterium is cultured on the Lowenstein-Jensen medium
Bacterial culture taken on first day was negative but Lowenstein-Jensen medium
showed growth of acid fast organisms on 3rd day (Figure2).
Dilution protocol of bile acids in Lowenstein-Jensen medium Lowenstein-Jensen medium
with bile acid additives Lithocolic acid Cholic acid (mg/ml) (mg/ml) Dilution 1 2 32 Dilution 2 1 16 Dilution 3 0.
The positive liquid cultures were subcultured in the solid Lowenstein-Jensen medium
and incubated at 37[degrees]C.
Thus, drug resistance at OAT in 54% of cases was verified by postoperative material bacteriological culturing into Lowenstein-Jensen medium
and conducting drug sensitivity test to determine the sensitivity to the drugs of the first line.
