COMPARISON OF PROPORTIONAL DIRECT AND INDIRECT METHODS IN ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE IN MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS DETECTION
23 till 25 August 2016، Tehran - Iran
Presentation Type: Speech
Background and Aim: Time - consuming in reporting the antibiotic determination result is the most challengeable bottleneck based on proportional method in Mycobacterium Tuberculosis diagnosis labs. To overcome this problem, we hypothesized that concentrated s amples (grade from 1+ to 3+) can be applied instead of colonies from same sample.
