The reliability of mycobacteria growth indicator tubes (MGIT) for determining the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis to isoniazid (0.1 microgram/ml) and rifampin (2.0 micrograms/ml) was evaluated by comparing MGIT results to those obtained by the radiometric BACTEC TB method. We tested 29 isolates, many selected for resistance. The turnaround times were 3-8 days (median 6) for MGIT and 4-10 days (median 6) for BACTEC. Isoniazid results by both methods agreed for all isolates tested… CONTINUE READING
