The MGIT™ Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tubes contain 4 ml of Middlebrook 7H9 Broth base with a fluorescent indicator and is intended for the manual detection and recovery of mycobacteria. The broth is contained in a plastic tube with screw-top cap and supplemented with BD MGIT™ OADC enrichment (Cat. No. 245116) and BD MGIT™ PANTA™ antibiotic mixture (Cat. No. 245114). Acceptable specimen types are digested and decontaminated clinical specimens (except urine) and sterile body fluids (except blood). A culture-positive sample is identified by the observation of non-homogenous turbidity or fluorescence, the latter of which is observed using a 365 mm UV transilluminator, a longwave UV light (Wood´s lamp) or the BD MicroMGIT Reader.
