Abstract

SUMMARY

This paper demonstrates that various degrees of mycobactin dependence exist within the group of mycobacteria and that this characteristic is not confined to The strains employed came from a wide range of animal species and all were virulent for chickens. Mycobactin dependence was observed in the serotypes 1, 2 and 3.

The importance of employing a medium containing mycobactin for primary isolations from tissue containing only small numbers of viable units of is emphasised. This observation may be of interest in relation to the primary isolation of other species of mycobacteria.
