Abstract:

Tubercular bacilli may be present in a variety of specimens that will be sent to the clinical mycobacterial laboratory for processing. is highly infectious with a 50% infective dose (ID) of <10 bacilli. Specimen manipulation runs the risk of exposing laboratory personnel to this organism. BSL 2 practices are required for procedures that are not likely to produce an aerosol. Smear preparation may be performed using BSL 2 practices. The use of a slide-warming tray is preferred over the use of a flame for heat fixing smears. Smears may be prepared on the bench if the specimen was first treated with an equal volume of 5% sodium hypochlorite solution for 15 min.
