AIMS To compare the detection capabilities of the non-radiometric MGIT (Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tubes) and radiometric BACTEC 460TB culture systems (Becton Dickinson, Cowley, Oxford, UK) for recovering Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis from milk. METHODS AND RESULTS Ultra heat treated (UHT) milk samples spiked with different levels of M. paratuberculosis (10-107 cells ml-1) were inoculated into MGIT and BACTEC media (containing recommended supplements) with and without prior… CONTINUE READING
