Use of HettCube incubators and cooled incubators to demonstrate the presence of mycobacteria and for their differentiation

Tuberculosis, which once claimed the lives of many people, was believed to be a disease that had been virtually eradicated. However, the poor conditions under which many people live, increased frequency of travel to distant countries and immigration from crisis zones mean that this disease is once again on the increase. It is, therefore, necessary to culture the mycobacteria responsible and differentiate between them.
