Abstract

Summary

The use of eight rapid tests for the identification of 1307 strains of mycobacteria belonging to 18 species was evaluated. The standard niacin, nitrate-reductase and catalase tests were supplemented by new tests for the detection of β glucosidase, urease, penicillinase, trehalase and cephalosporinase. This combination of eight rapid tests was not able to replace more conventional procedures but in some cases was of value in discriminating between closely related species.
