Comparison of the ESP and BACTEC systems for testing susceptibilities of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex isolates to pyrazinamide


Comparison of the ESP and BACTEC systems for testing susceptibilities of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex isolates to pyrazinamide



Journal of Clinical Microbiology 40(6): 2238-2239

DOI: 10.1128/jcm.40.6.2238-2239.2002

Fifty isolates of M. tuberculosis complex were tested for susceptibility to pyrazinamide (PZA) by the ESP and BACTEC test systems. Initial results showed concordance for 48 of the isolates. On retest, the two discordant isolates were resolved in favour of the ESP system.
