This research was undertaken to evaluate volatile chemicals which retained mycobactericidal activity in cattle slurry. Mycobacterium bovis, suspended in sterilized cattle slurry, was treated with different concentrations of five volatile chemicals with mycobactericidal activity. Following treatment of the slurry for specified time intervals, the reaction mixture was lyophilized to remove the volatile chemicals, and samples of the reconstituted slurry were used to inoculate flasks of Lowenstein… CONTINUE READING
