Abstract

Six methods of decontamination each for the isolation of mycobacteria from soil and water were compared. On the basis of the results obtained. three of the six methods for soil and two of the six methods for water were further evaluated. For both soil and water samples, the method using 3% sodium lauryl sulfate in combination with 1% NaOH yielded more positives than the other methods.
