Mycobacteriology Journals

 Mycobacteriology is the branch of  bacteriology that deals especially with the bacteria of the genus Mycobacterium.Over 190 species are recognized under this genus. This genus includes pathogens that causes serious diseases in mammals which includes Mycobacterium tuberculosis that causes tuberculosis and Mycobacterium leprae that causes leprosy in humans.they are aerobic, bacillary in form and generally nonmotile bacteria.Both public and private mycobacteriology laboratories are  maintained for detection and identification of  Mycobacterium genus organisms that causes different diseases from patient specimens, as well as to determine the presence of antibiotic resistance accurately.New genotypic and phenotypic methods of susceptibility testing include first- and second-line agents and are promising, though not yet widely available. Finally, gamma interferon release assays are preferred to the tuberculin skin test for screening certain at-risk populations here are some Mycobacteriology Services listed:Molecular & Growth Detection of tuberculosis and nontuberculous mycobacteria (atypical mycobacterium),Isolate Identification,Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing for Nontuberculous Mycobacteria (rapidly and slowly growing)Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing for Aerobic Actinomycetes and Tuberculosis.
