Evaluation of a microscopy method for rapid detection and identification of Mycoplasma pneumoniae

, : Evaluation of a microscopy method for rapid detection and identification of Mycoplasma pneumoniae. Journal of Clinical Microbiology 2(6): 541-545

A microscopy test that used the typical shape of Mycoplasma pneumoniae cells growing on glass was investigated for its value for diagnostic purposes. Suspensions from 108 throat swabs were infected artificially with 102, 103, and 104 colony-forming units of three M. pneumoniae strains per ml. Agar medium, a diphasic medium, and the microscopy method with liquid medium in cover slip chambers were compared for isolation of the mycoplasmas. The mycoplasms were detected first by the microscopy method in nearly all concentrations tested. Typical M. pneumoniae cells could often be detected after 48 h. No differences were found between a laboratory strain and two low-passage strains. The experimental results suggest that under special circumstances the microscopy method could be a useful tool for isolation and identification of M. pneumoniae.
