more Aquatic Mycobacterium spp. Culture Swabs, fresh tissue 2-8 weeks Culture and/or PCR are recommended for all Rapidly Growing Mycobacteria. Positive culture results are reported based on colony morphology and a positive Acid Fast Stain as “presumptive”. For further characterization of genus and species DNA sequencing is available at AVDL. MIC susceptibility testing for Rapidly Growing Mycobacteria is also available. To provide fast reliable diagnosis, PCR is recommended for Slowly Growing Mycobacteria. This group includes Mycobacterium tuberculosis Complex and Mycobacterium avium Complex . We offer DNA sequencing for further characterization of positive results.
