Rapid identification of mycolic acid patterns of mycobacteria by high-performance liquid chromatography using pattern recognition software and a Mycobacterium library.

Abstract

Current methods for identifying mycobacteria by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) require a visual assessment of the generated chromatographic data, which often involves time-consuming hand calculations and the use of flow charts. Our laboratory has developed a personal computer-based file containing patterns of mycolic acids detected in 45… (More)
