Abstract

Using 106 clinical isolates of mycobacteria, we showed that INNO-LIPA Mycobacteria assay is an excellent tool to rapidly identify the most frequently isolated nontuberculous mycobacteria, in one procedure. It may be used as an additional technique to AccuProbe assay, which remains the fastest and the cheapest tool for a rapid and accurate identification of the M. tuberculosis complex.
