Investigations of nontuberculous mycobacterium (NTM) infections associated with various environmental sources have been hampered by the lack of adequate techniques for selective isolation of these organisms from environmental fluids. This study compared chemical dosing techniques for recovery of NTM from water samples collected from 115 randomly selected dialysis centers. Cell suspensions of NTM group II and IV isolates and gram-negative bacteria were exposed to solutions containing sodium… CONTINUE READING
