Chapter 3 Bacteriological Diagnosis Abstract Sample collection and handling influences the sensitivity of the different microbiological techniques employed. Whenever possible, samples should be collected before beginning chemotherapy, in open areas or in well-ventilated rooms. Despite the advances made in the past 30 years in the microbiological techniques used for diagnosing TB, only a small portion of the global world population can benefit from them.

Centrifugation in association with any chemical homogenization method increases sensitivity more than sedimentation. The diagnostic performance of sputum serial samples has also been evaluated. 8 %. 2 Culture Methods Isolation of mycobacteria from clinical samples by culture is still the cornerstone on which the definitive diagnosis of TB and other mycobacterioses relies. At present, mycobacterial culture can be performed on conventional egg-based solid media such as Löwenstein–Jensen (LJ) and on those based on agar such as Middle brook 7H10 or 7H11, and in liquid media such as Middle brook 7H9 broth.

Further studies are required to elucidate the metabolic pathways involved and assess whether these compounds are produced during mycobacterial growth in vivo. Bacilloscopy (sputum or other samples) remains the most readily available test to establish a microbiological diagnosis but other more sensitive methods identifying MTB, particularly rapid molecular tests, are quickly gaining acceptance due to their performance and applicability. 2 succinctly summarizes the evidencebased performance of different TB diagnostic tests [5, 10, 11].
