Title (EN) REAGENTS FOR COUNTING MYCOBACTERIA, METHOD THEREFOR, AND METHOD FOR TESTING DRUG SENSITIVITY OF MYCOBACTERIA
(FR) REACTIFS POUR LA NUMERATION DES MYCOBACTERIES, PROCEDE A CET EFFET, ET PROCEDE POUR TESTER LA SENSIBILITE DES MYCOBACTERIES AUX MEDICAMENTS
Abstract:
(EN) A technique for counting mycobacteria by which changes in mycobacterial count during culture can be monitored with the passage of time so that drug sensitivity tests can be completed within a short period of time. Specifically, reagents for counting mycobacteria characterized by containing an ingredient which reacts with ATP and thus emits light, a method involving the step of adding the above reagent to a sample containing mycobacteria and measuring the light emission, and an apparatus for effecting this method.
(FR) L'invention concerne une technique de numération des mycobactéries permettant de contrôler dans le temps les variations de cette numération au cours de la mise en culture, de sorte que des tests de sensibilité aux médicaments peuvent être réalisés dans un court délai. Plus précisément, l'invention concerne des réactifs pour la numération des mycobactéries, caractérisés en ce qu'ils contiennent un principe actif réagissant avec l'ATP et émettant ainsi de la lumière, un procédé consistant à ajouter le réactif précité à un échantillon contenant des mycobactéries et à mesurer l'émission lumineuse, ainsi qu'un appareil pour réaliser ce procédé.
