Abstract

Summary

A system was developed for the identification of mycobacteria such as and , by thin layer chromatography of Fe-labelled mycobactin. Approximately 2 × 10 mycobacteria were detected within 24 h and little operator time or skill was required. and were found to have lower requirements for iron than other mycobacteria and this may influence their growth in host organisms.
