Organization and Practice in Tuberculosis Bacteriology focuses on the organization and technical methods of tuberculosis bacteriology. This book discusses the mycobacteria and mycobacterial disease and role and scope of the tuberculosis laboratory in human and veterinary medicine and epidemiology. The organization of tuberculosis laboratory services; collection, preservation and transport of specimens; and examination of direct smears are also elaborated. This text likewise covers the decontamination of specimens, inoculation of culture media, and identification of species and variants of tubercle bacilli. Other topics include the drug sensitivity tests, animal inoculation and assay tests; problems faced in the therapy of tuberculosis, and lipid chromatography. This publication is suitable for biologists, medical practitioners, and clinicians concerned with tuberculosis bacteriology.
