The Importance of Rigid pH Control When Culturing Mycobacteria
22 August 2017

This application note explains how rigid pH control can lead to greater retention of viable mycobacteria and how this can bring about many benefits, including making smears easier to interpret and making culture results faster to obtain. It details how the MycoDRR™ reagents can buffers can be used to recover bacterium in a simple three step process whilst keeping the pH within a range which is ideal for mycobacteria survival.
