Improved isolation of mycobacteria other than Mycobacterium tuberculosis on isoniazid-containing Lowenstein-Jensen medium

Miörner, Håkan LU and Olsson, B (1988) In European Journal of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases 7(1). p.47-49
Abstract
The benefit of including isoniazid-containing Lowenstein-Jensen medium for primary isolation of mycobacteria was evaluated in 3,726 clinical specimens. This media increased the primary isolation of mycobacteria other than Mycobacterium tuberculosis by 9.2%, facilitated macroscopical reading and aided presumptive identification of the isolated mycobacteria.
